While several around the San Antonio Spurs organization like to joke about head coach Gregg Popovich, even calling him CIA Pop, apparently there is a new agent in town.
In a Foot Locker and Nike commercial featuring Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant, Spurs guard Marco Belinelli makes a cameo appearance alongside Mavs forward Dirk Nowitzki as "Agent Marco Belinelli."
Belinelli and Nowitzki are hiding out in a black van when they get word from Durant from his Kevin Durant Investigates headquarters about whether or not a certain kid is ready for a pair of Durant’s shoes. Those that are deemed ready are given a package with the shoes, while those that are not are treated to, among other things, a ball with the words “not ready” flung in their face courtesy of the Spurs’ new three point sharpshooter.
Belinelli is also involved in another drop for a kid on a basketball court who is given what seems like a pair of orange Nike KD VI basketball sneakers.
For the sake of Spurs fans, let’s hope Belinelli is as accurate on the hardwood as he is in his deliveries in the commercial. We’’ll find out soon enough since, as the commercial states, a new season is coming soon.
