Anthony Davis’ new Kids Foot Locker spot reminds you to take it up strong, even in the driveway (Video)

There is one major problem with your stuff, young Alex Taylor: Anthony Davis believes that it is weak, and that it should not be allowed in his house, which in this case is defined as "the driveway in front of your house."

As commercials go, this is better than using your unibrow to sell cell phones, I think.

I know that this is all just a cleverly designed bit of marketing aimed at getting me to buy particular kinds of #fresh #gear for my nephews, but if it's all the same to you, I'm going to choose to believe that the rising star forward is keeping this kind of monologue going every time he takes the court and starts swatting fools' shots during New Orleans Pelicans games. I don't really need anything to heighten the enjoyment I feel watching Davis' unchecked growth into some new brand of terrifying beast (much like his team's mascot), but I'm not going to turn down anything that makes it more fun, either, and imagining the Brow running down the court quietly chanting "MVP! MVP!" to himself after rejecting, like, Aaron Gray is just too good to pass up.

So, y'know, well played, Kids Foot Locker. We're all waiting with bated breath to see what happens when AD shows up in Chris Paul's driveway to play one-on-one with CP4, so get on it, gang.

Hat-tip to r/NBA.
