Remembering 1998's NBA lockout commercials

The good people at Dime did some YouTube digging and found a couple commercials that were in circulation during the last NBA lockout in 1998. Quality stuff.

I sure hope Wieden + Kennedy is already hard at work cranking out a couple new additions, because a funny ad or two can help take the sting out of a crippling lockout. Too bad we'll probably just end up with a bunch of new episodes to "The LeBrons."

One thing though: Tim Duncan used to do commercials?

I loved the Spike Lee one. That was funny. Hopefully during the lockout they will make some new commericals.

"Sprite Salary Cap Game"  That's marketing genius. They sure don't make em like they used to.

It's hard to believe these commercials are 13 years old. Where does time go?

Actually, these commercials make me want the NBA to stay locked out.
