In preparation for Father’s Day this Sunday, Foot Locker have dropped their latest ad featuring some of this year’s top draftees, including De’Aron Fox, Jayson Tatum and Jonathon Isaac, but the real star of the hilarious new commercial is undoubtedly UCLA product, Lonzo Ball.
As the other draftees look back on memorable moments with their fathers, including playing one-on-one in the driveway or traveling to high school basketball games. Cut to Ball, whose reflections are a little different than his fellow 2017 draft classmates.
“The NBA Draft is a milestone I’ve been working toward for a long time and it’s exciting to celebrate it with a Foot Locker commercial. I loved last year’s spot with Ben Simmons and D’Angelo Russell and I love how they give us players the opportunity to make light out of things,” Ball said. “It’s been a big year for my family, and I know we’re just getting started. My dad and I both love the humor of the spot and I’m glad I got to have a little fun around the topic before going to the league.”
Foot Locker’s latest ad will air the night of the NBA draft on June 22 and is a part of Foot Locker’s Approved platform.
