Chinese NBA playoffs commercial casts players as warriors, is amazing (VIDEO)

Not to get all Stefon on you, but this commercial from Chinese television network CCTV has everything: Playoff teams imagined as feudal kingdoms, legions of armored warriors ready to head into battle, everyone wielding sharpened weapons, Kobe Bryant with claws ... everything.

If the first quarter of Game 1 between the Chicago Bulls and Philadelphia 76ers doesn't have you suitably amped for the beginning of the second season, then this should do the trick. Now we're ready for the 2012 NBA Playoffs. Feels good, don't it?
