This morning, just hours after his 29-point blitzing of the Rockets, they dropped a new one starring Russell Westbrook. This is how they describe the spot:
“We Are All Watching: Westbrook” is the second in the series of NBA Playoffs 2013 commercials. This spot takes us around the world for a glimpse at fans from Buenos Aires to Beijing watching Oklahoma City Thunder’s Russell Westbrook in the pivotal game 5 against the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2012 Western Conference Finals. Tied at 70 in the third quarter, Westbrook intercepts a pass to Kobe Bryant then races down the court. Westbrook is fouled and he puts up a spectacular shot which was the catalyst to win the series.
