Are you ready for the NBA season to begin or n… you know what? That’s a dumb question. Of course you are. With so many questions yet to be answered — will Derrick Rose and Kobe Bryant return to form? Can the Miami Heat hold court without the king? Has father time finally caught up to Tim Duncan?

The official start of the NBA season is still weeks away, but the Heat and the Cavs will face off tomorrow in a preseason contest for the NBA Global Games 2014, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Along with the game, the NBA will premiere its first ad of the season, narrated and featuring Chi-Town’s own Common. Take a sneak peak up above at the spot which highlights all 30 NBA teams and the players, coaches, staff and fans that make up the expansive NBA community.
