We are now deep into the heart of the NBA Playoffs with Lebron James’ securing his 8th consecutive trip to The Finals in as many years. With a plethora of storylines and teams to follow this year, it’s no surprise that there might be a little trash talking going on between die hard NBA fans. No matter which team you followed this season, there’s been something for everyone to chew on. These spec spots from director Tyson Breuer throw down a few huge dunks of trash talk right in basketball fan’s faces.
“Your Mother” pays homage to retired NBA great Dennis Rodman and his love affair with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un. Ultimately the jabs go back and forth with blows to Houston Rockets star James Harden, a recently deceased mother, and the recently ousted Boston Celtics. “Court Side” takes square aim at the unibrow of New Orleans star centre Anthony Davis, but also rips point guard Kyle Lowry, the Toronto Raptors playoff record, and the injury plagued knees of NBA star Derrick Rose. No team is safe and as long as there's still some basketball to be played, the trash talking will continue.
The NBA Finals begin on MAY 31st.
