Today in practice, in different cities, Dwight Howard and LeBron James were playing game of HORSE. It started off with a full court shot by LeBron James which was later matched by a backpack wearing Howard.
The shots immediately took me back to a McDonalds commercial from 2010 – actually it took me back to 2009 because I was contacted about finding the dunkers for the commercial which ended up going to a couple of Globetrotters. The commercial featured Dwight and James and showed them playing a game of HORSE – a remake of the famous Bird vs Jordan “play you for the fries” commercial from the 90s.
The full court shots also took me back 5 years earlier when James was featured in a Powerade commercial that actually had some gullible idiots thinking LeBron could take and make full court jumpers.
