The NBA MLK Day Commercial Catches The Spirit Perfectly [Video]
The NBA caught the spirit of Martin Luther King's 'I Have A Dream' speech perfectly with their MLK Day commercial.
The NBA traditionally hosts a bunch of games on MLK Day, and uses the exposure to promote Dr. Kings words to their fans. This commercial catches the true spirit of the words by going passed the black and white issues, and showing the true cultural diversity that King talked about.
It makes a ton sense for the NBA to be the organization promoting this message. They are easily the most diverse professional sport in the world, just take a look at this incredible stat from the beginning of this season.
NBA rosters at the start of the 2014-15 season featuring a record 101 international players from 37 countries and territories.
The video does a great job of going deeper than the black and white issues that have plagued America for too long. Sure the NBA isn't perfect, but they definitely scored some points for this one.
