Editor's Pick

Following Houston Rockets shooting guard James Harden's stint as Foot Locker frontman, the brand continues its partnership with NBA players. In this latest spot out of BBDO New York, Washington Wizards point guard John Wall promotes his new line of sneakers only to be told by one of his buddies that he's right on track with his pro-athlete career timeline: "First you get the signature shoe, then you make a championship run, then you get the girl, then you get the mansion...." Spoiler: That's the "rise" part; the "fall" part isn't as pretty.
