and sometimes, federo...we are both happy and envious of a creative genius at work right in front of us in our own very lifetime...but that happens about once in a ...er...lot many years....and this is definitely not that type.

This is an amazing retrospective take on some of the greatest images/players from past NBA finals. And the photography is exceptionally beautiful. Definitely an ad that will be reprinted as a poster and displayed proudly on kids' walls all over the world. Good work.

I agree. This really takes me back and shows the richness of the history of the finals. Great artwork with a simple tagline that brings the point home. Plus, yeah - it's totally wall poster worthy. Well done.

I dream of a day when chickens will be able to cross the road without being questioned regarding their intentions.

i like fedro's comment. i can understand his overflow of emotion in the presence of larrybird or MJ or OJ or Kareem... and greats like those.
i'd say, its not world changing. but its superb and awesome. Art direction is fantastic.
however, there's one interesting thing in this piece. the copy. i like the construction. it imitates the TG's "way of speaking". i'm referring to the hiphop thing.

Excellent. Not a huge idea, but beautiful photography and execution, lovely writing, and - most importantly - a great understanding of the audience raise this to a great ad.

Bravo. Great has happened here.

The art direction is not enough for me...the lighting is a bit odd...
