The gritty rooftop "Miami Kiwanis Club League" might be every bit as much a fantasy as the idea of seeing The Heatles destroy the NBA again before Christmastime -- but damn if it doesn't look like a hell of a fun game.
Dwyane Wade dominates for a "Little Havana" team in a new Jordan ad debuted during the World Series last night, and with the lockout in full swing, he's also got time to blow through the Flamingo Senior Center Rec League and to be a ringer for the Sanitation Department for the Dade County Municipal League. Check it out.
The ad also features Chris Paul keepin his game sharp in the Bayou Women's League and Carmelo Anthony blocking bearded hipsters in a Williamsburg pickup game before fist-bumping a Hasidic coach in a Jewish Under-40 league.
To be honest, this ad is already the best part of the lockout.
Now if anyone needs any players for that rooftop Kiwanis club game, we've got a few 5' 10", moderately out of shape ballers at Riptide always looking for a game. Just saying.
