Consistent with the cleverness and source for a quality advertisement, Foot Locker teams Houston Rocket James Harden with NBA Hall-of-Famers Charles Barkley and former Chicago Bull Scottie Pippen in its most recent commercial. In the closing moments of the ad, Barkley asks Pippen to reassure the up-and-comer Harden that a “short memory” is the most important asset a great player can possess.
Pippen response to Barkley validates Chuck’s point by having Pippen proclaim to be the greatest Chicago Bull of all time. Of course, the joke of it all is that Michael Jordan is the greatest Chicago Bull and basketball player of all time.
Clearly, Pippen’s intentionally being ironic and the commercial continues the recent string of awesome ads produced by Foot Locker. Pippen, who has made news on a few occasions since entering retirement for comments pertaining to Michael Jordan’s legacy, delivers an appropriate laugh to defuse any potential rift between the two.
