Chris Paul, son take over Blake Griffin’s locker in commercial (Video)


When Stephen Curry left Nike for Under Armour, I admit I was concerned Foot Locker’s commercials may take a dive considering Curry played a vital role in some of their recent commercial success.

But the crew behind the advertisements has continued on without Curry and the results have been quite strong, including a spot that featured Mike Tyson returning Evander Holyfield’s previously bitten off ear.

Now they’ve done it again – this time with Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul and his son, ‘Lil Chris’. Oh, and Blake Griffin too – but as you’ll see, he’s a bit of an afterthought.

The spot starts with Chris standing at his locker which catches the eye of what is supposedly supposed to be a Clippers employee. He comments on ‘Lil Chris’ and his new locker, which just so happened to be Blake Griffin’s former locker.

But Griffin’s locker has been relocated – to a Los Angeles bus terminal, while Lil Chris and Big Chris don’t want to hear anything about Blake or his former locker….
