Russell Westbrook And Kyrie Irving Star In NBA Start Of Season Campaign
With the NBA regular season only 12 days away (Oct 25), the “Association” tips off tonight (Oct 13) with a pre-season double header on TNT. During the games, brand new commercials of “29,” featuring Cavalier Kyrie Irving and “Zeroes” with Russell Westbrook are set to debut. The clips highlight what two of the NBA’s best will be facing in their upcoming seasons.
Russell Westbrook preaches about putting aside last year’s wins and losses along with the departure of Kevin Durant to celebrate the excitement and unknown of a new season. The past doesn’t matter because each team has a clean slate starting 0-0.
Looking down the road, “29” takes fans inside the mind of Kyrie Irving as he prepares with a target on his back to face 29 other hungry teams. After coming back from a 3-1 NBA Finals deficit, the 24-year-old is more determined than ever to defend the Cavaliers’ title.
Both ads will premiere tonight during TNT’s doubleheader featuring a Conference Finals rematch of the Raptors and Cavaliers at 8 P.M. EST, along with another 2016 playoff rematch between the Trail Blazers and Clippers, tipping off at 10:30 P.M. EST.
