NBA players continue to have plenty of free time with the league's lockout still ongoing and not really showing any signs of ending very soon. The lack of a functioning league isn't keeping some of the game's best from getting a run in, though.
Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul andCarmelo Anthony all star in a new Jordan commercial titled "Love the Game," in which the All-Star triumvirate is shown playing some pickup hoops in their respective cities.
The three get in on some pickup games and lend some help to teams in leagues like:
Flamingo Sr. Rec Center League Bayou Women's League Jewish Under-40 League
For most basketball shoe launch events, they are relatively simple with the players posing for pictures and video montages filling the room.Carmelo Anthony's shoe launch was a little different, it had pyrotechnics and a helicopter...Get To The Chopper!:(Courtesy of ESPN YouTube Page)

It sounds like the NBA will be cancelling two more weeks of games so for the near future we’ll be limited to glorified pickup games, and commercials like this one, to see the league’s biggest stars in something resembling basketball action. This ad, released by the Jumpman23 YouTube account, contains Dwyane Wade, Chris [...]
During the 1998-99 lockout, Nike put out several now-classic ads poking fun at our need for the game. Samuel L. Jackson and Spike Lee were (and are) more famous than most of us, but their passion at a driveway game of HORSE or little Regina Miller's middle school game wasn't so different from our own.
