The Quiet Storm

I absolutely love this new advertisement for the NBA playoffs. It looks great in black and white, and its one of the coolest plays in recent years - Manu weaves through the entire Suns' front line, makes a great pass, and there's something dignified about how Tim Duncan takes his time lining up a rare three-point shot, which absolutely killed the Suns in a way that few shots in recent memory have killed another team. But beyond that, I love how you see the entire play, from start to finish, and how Tim Duncan - who I've nicknamed 'The Quiet Storm' for his silent-but-deadly on-court demeanor - just explodes with emotion after the ball goes through the net. Its just a cool advertisement.
