The recent posting of the Vitaminwater ads starring D-Will and other Olympic stars got me thinking: which NBA sports drink endorsers would win in a game?
According to this, Gatorade’s NBA endorsers include Kevin Garnett, Kevin Durant, and Dwyane Wade. I couldn’t find any other current endorsers, but obviously you could add Michael Jordan. On the other hand, current Powerade endorsers include our own C-Booz, along with Carmelo Anthony, Amare Stoudamire, Paul Pierce, and Baron Davis, among several others.
So, who would you roll with?
(worth noting, Shaq also endorses Vitaminwater)
PG: Dwyane Wade
SG: Jordan (let’s say an in-his-prime Jordan, for the sake of argument)
SF: Kevin Durant
PF: Kevin Garnett
C: ? (couldn’t find a center who endorses Gatorade -- let's assume a player on par with the others on Gatorade's team, like, say, Tim Duncan.)
PG: Baron Davis
SG: Paul Pierce
SF: Carmelo Anthony
PF: Carlos Boozer
C: Amare Stoudamire
(optional replacement: Tyson Chandler)
Talk amongst yourselves.
[EDITED: changed placeholder center on Team Gatorade, because Gatorade would probably only choose a top-caliber player as an endorser. Also added Powerade endorser Tyson chandler as an option, as per comments below.]
