23 years after directing the Public Enemy video “Fight The Power,” Spike, wearing Melo’s jersey, and the music of PE pay tribute to the “King of New York” in this new NBA BIG commercial. That King is not Christopher Walken or Christopher Wallace but Bernard King who dropped 60 points in a historic game on Christmas day between the Knicks and Nets in 1984.
Check out the commercial then check out the amazing game below where Jeff Turner, Kevin McKenna, Buck Williams, Michael Ray Richardson, George Johnson, Kelvin Ransey all took turns trying to guard the King. Jeff Turner racked up 4 fouls in the first quarter.
