LeBron & Dwight's Super Bowl Ad Teaser - Remake of McDonald’s Classic Jordan vs. Bird Commercial (QUESTIONABLE)

The idea to remake McDonald's classic commercial featuring Michael Jordan and Larry Bird going head to head might have seemed like a good idea at first but I'm not sure I like where they are going with it. Even though this video above is only a quick sneak peak I just have a funny feeling they are going to screw this up somehow. 

Although LeBron James can pull off some crazy shots, Dwight Howard can barely make a free throw more than 50% of the time and his jump shot has shades of Chris Dudley in it.  If they remake the original concept of a shooting contest, then this is a terrible idea and really poor choice of players. If it ends up being a remix of the original and it becomes a crazy dunk off, I think I can get down with it.  It will piss everyone off that wants to see LeBron in the Dunk Contest but it's probably the closest we will ever see these two go at it so I guess I'll take it. 

I've probably posted it about 5 separate times on this site already but here's another look at the original McDonald's commercial featuring Jordan vs. Bird.  It doesn't get much better than this

"Off the floor.  Off the Scoreboard.  Off the Bankboard.  No riyyyyyummmmm."

Take a close look and you will see Jordan wearing the Air Jordan VII in the White/Black/Cardinal Red/Bronze colorway below.  I always loved these but I went with the Black/Red/Purple colorway back in the day instead.  Can we get a new retro of these please?!?!  I need them!!! - Addicted to Sneakers, Sports, Hip Hop and Gadgets
