SECOND COMING OF WHAT? (http://www.nike.com/nikebasketball/usa/?loclist=force,secondcoming&promoID=usbb_0119071030#force,secondcoming)

Last I checked Dirk was under contract with Nike? Interesting collection of players in the new "Second Coming" collection. Hmm, maybe they are all Americans? That's it, Americans... well, isn't that Steve Nash he's Canadian eh'... wait... look over there to the left isn't that Tony Parker, isn't he a Frenchy Fu Fu? Where's Dirk?

Oh, I get it Dirk's not the "second coming" of anything, not the "second coming" of Bird, nope, he's the Dagger man, the Ubermann, the best ball player in the world, pound for pound, inch for inch. I think now I appreciate Nike's new cam'pain because Dirk doesn't belong with that group of chumps, he ain't Nike, he's no second rate greek god, Dirk, he's Zeus, he's my Jesus Christ superstar, he's numero uno...:rolleyes:

Nike you ain't touching my feet or my wallet!

I noticed that as well, it makes no sense not to put dirk in there... at least they put dirk on the site... if you go to the 25 years of force icon , dirk's at the end of it, has a rough, rugged picture of him

Avery won't let any of his team members waste time making silly commercials during his 82-game training camp.

I didn't know Steve Nash was black.

The new commercial that has all of the black guys' walking to an Airport
hanger to play would be neat........ if when they get inside Dirk is there
already and says............I've been waitng for you.

F nike. I'd rather have Dirk with Team Jordan.

could have sworn this is the same thread as "new nike ad".......

Nike put in the most marketable players in the NBA. Sorry to tell you but Dirk isn't one of them. He's fun to watch but he doesn't have the flashy passes or 360 dunks. Everyone in that commercial fits either one of those bills.

I can't quite understand why sheed is in there then. He's not exactly flashy either.

01-27-2007, 12:38 AM
Well Sheed just like Kobe and Lebron has his own signature shoe. But yea I do agree he doesn't fit the mold either. His play is actually pretty similar to Dirk's in a way but I think what sets him a part is his signature shoes. I own two pair but they're very limited so not really sure how they sell.
