Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Kawhi Leonard are starring in a new series of commercials and they are hilarious. Are these the funniest commercials ever promoted by pro athletes? Better yet, are these the funniest acting jobs ever performed by pro athletes? Kareem Abdul-Jabbar had some seriously funny moments in Airplane! O.J. Simpson gave turned in yeoman’s efforts in the Naked Gun series. And, apparently, Mike Tyson is hilarious in his one-man stand-up act. For me, though, these commercials take the cake. Each one made me laugh some. It could be because I’m a huge Spurs fan, but I think anyone could appreciate them. I was very surprised to see Kawhi Leonard in the spots. He provided a different element. Leonard is one of my favorite athletes to watch for many reasons. Of course I like his game, but it is his professionalism and sportsmanship that I respect most. After, the 2013 NBA Finals, Dwyane Wade called Leonard the “Quiet Assassin.” Wade said he never heard Leonard talk and so he still doesn’t know what he sounds like. Leonard’s father was murdered when he was in high school and that may be the reason for his shyness and resistance to showing off. It’s refreshing to see athletes like Leonard and the rest of the Spurs, who have been together for so long as teammates. They can make funny commercials that make fun of themselves and not worry about how it might impact their reputations. For me, they have enhanced their reputations by being so entertaining. Enjoy this new round of 30-second spots for the HEB supermarket brand of products. For Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker and Tim Duncan, this makes more than a dozen commercials together. I listed my six favorites before, click here to see. Best Line: “Because I relish our friendship” Best Line: Duncan says as he’s walking out of the room, “What does ‘indubitably’ even mean? “Boom. Bam. Pow…It’s good.” I say, “Not bad.” Best Line: Kawhi says, “This is just how I do it, man (with a smile).” Also, funny line: Parker says, “What about delicates?” The post San Antonio Spurs: Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, Kawhi Leonard star in new commercials appeared first on Midwest Sports Fans.
