A few years ago I was asked to find LeBron and Dwight Howard body doubles/dunkers for a McDonald’s commercial. LeBron wasn’t that tough, but finding somebody as tall and built as Dwight was especially since Dwight has those huge shoulders and tiny head.
In this new Adidas commercial called “NBA Swingman,” we meet Dwight’s “body double” and watch him fill in for NBA superstar duties.
This commercial is the first of 5. Andrew Wiggins, Damian Lillard, Kenneth Faried and Joakim Noah will be the stars of the other 4.
But seriously, my vote for best Dwight Howard body double goes to Michael “Airdogg” Stewart.
