McDonald's Super Bowl Commercial featuring LeBron James and Dwight Howard (DECENT)

Ahhh!  Now this makes sense. When I first heard about LeBron and Dwight Howard remaking the classic Jordan vs. Bird McDonald's commercial I was hoping they wouldn't destroy the original by letting these two do a shooting version of H-O-R-S-E. Considering how terrible of a shooter Howard is, I thought that would be the worst idea ever.  If they weren't doing a dunk off, there was no point in remaking the commercial.  

Luckily, I was right and they decided to go with the Dunk Contest version of H-O-R-S-E.  I wasn't blown away but I thought it came out pretty good. It wasn't quite as enjoyable as the original but at least they took the concept to the next level.

Even though they used a ton of special effects to make it happen, I wouldn't doubt that Dwight and/or LeBron could pull of a modified version of some of these dunks if they tried hard enough. The things that these two freaks can pull off are crazy!  They are as close as you can get to a human being able to pull off some of those crazy video game dunks.  

I love that my man Larry Bird made an appearance at the end of the commercial too (although MJ was glaringly absent). "Who's that?" "I have no idea but he's taking our lunch!". HA HA. - Addicted to Sneakers, Sports, Hip Hop and Gadgets
