While several around the San Antonio Spurs organization like to joke about head coach Gregg Popovich, even calling him CIA Pop, apparently there is a new agent in town.
In a Foot Locker and Nike commercial featuring Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant, Spurs guard Marco Belinelli makes a cameo appearance alongside Mavs forward Dirk Nowitzki as "Agent Marco Belinelli."
Belinelli and Nowitzki are hiding out in a black van when they get word from Durant from his Kevin Durant Investigates headquarters about whether or not a certain kid is ready for a pair of Durant’s shoes. Those that are deemed ready are given a package with the shoes, while those that are not are treated to, among other things, a ball with the words “not ready” flung in their face courtesy of the Spurs’ new three point sharpshooter.
Belinelli is also involved in another drop for a kid on a basketball court who is given what seems like a pair of orange Nike KD VI basketball sneakers.
