Atlanta players have never been known as popular by NBA fans due to their lack of face time with fans. Whenever Hawks players get a chance to show themselves down to earth and level with fans, it is a “win” for Atlanta sports… PERIOD. The most recent commercial involves Josh Smith with some big names (Russell Westbrook, Andre Iguodala, Derrick Rose, and Rajon Rondo) in a commercial series for 2k’s upcoming game NBA 2K11. NBA 2K11 is the first game since NBA Live 2000 to frontrun Michael “Air” Jordan for their game. To be a part of promoting NBA 2K11 is a huge promotion not only for the game, but for players in the commercials. We see Josh as an emotional character and it seems as he even has the funniest lines. Let’s look at a couple of NBA 2K11 commercials:

Josh Smith at the end says, “Both of yall suck!”

Josh Smith says, “Someone’s chopping up onions in here!” Hilarious.

OK! So Josh doesn’t play the largest role in these commercials, but any face time is valued for the Hawks and helps increase their fan base. GREAT JOB JOSH!!! These commercials will definitely help spread the word.
