Somebody Punch that Talking Basketball in the NBA Logo

I can’t be the only one that thinks these NBA talking basketball commercials are awful, right? I hate them. I love the idea of recapturing classic moments from past NBA Finals, but this stupid talking ball? So, so dumb. Here’s a few of them spliced together if you’ve decided to not watch the NBA Playoffs this year.

The basketball’s voice changes? So, there’s a bunch of talking Official NBA Finals basketballs just roaming around town picking up commercials gigs? While watching the final game of the Heat vs. Bulls series, the Dr. J commercial being interviewed by the talking ball came on, and it hit me. At any moment I was ready for the this stupid ball to jump on Dr. J’s head and yell out “Gryffindor!”


[Yeah, so what? I think the NBA talking basketball is just like the sorting hat from Harry Potter. Can’t believe I just made a reference to Harry Potter? What an idiot, right? Yeah, well, you knew what I was talking about. So shut up.]
