Found November 25, 2013 on Next Impulse Sports:
PLAYERS: Kevin Garnett
TEAMS: Brooklyn Nets
This is a new Beats By Dre “Hear What You Want” spot featuring Kevin Garnett, and it’s quite intense by commercial standards. It features Garnett blocking out his haters – first Skip Bayless, who says he’s too old to play, then some savage opposing fans – with the noise-canceling headphones. The fans are the most ruthless part of the ad – they spit, throw eggs, and even hurl a racial insult at Garnett as he heads to a game. It’s a pretty jarring scene but it makes for a pretty great commercial. Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

KG adds another classic to basketball commercial marketing lexicon

Kevin Garnett is already involved in two of my favorite marketing spots involving basketball. My all time favorite is the NBA commercial underscored by Badfinger's "Day after Day" where fans around the Boston area get the news that "The Big Ticket" is on his was to Boston. I'm also quite fond of this Nike spot featuring Penny Hardaway that mentions KG...

Vote: Are You Rooting for the Brooklyn Nets to Lose?

When the blockbuster trade that sent beloved Celtics Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to Brooklyn was first completed, more than a few Boston fans happily admitted on Twitter that they would switch allegiances for one year.
