With five NBA games on national television on Tuesday, you probably used the commercial breaks as a time to open presents, chug another glass of egg nog and open some more presents. If so, you missed some quality programming.
Creative TV ads are a staple of Super Bowl Sunday, but Christmas Day is the biggest holiday on the NBA’s calendar. Companies responded to hoops’ Yuletide popularity by putting a hearty helping of NBA-theme commercials into their rotation on ESPN and ABC. The commercials included current stars like Kevin Durant and Chris Paul, as well as the Knicks’ biggest superfan reminiscing about Bernard King, one of the great stars of the past.
So call your friends on your Sprint phone, tell them to drive over in their Kia Optima insured by State Farm and enjoy some entertaining ads.
