"All the greats have short memories," claims Charles Barkley in the new Foot Locker ad.
Barkley, who has conveniently forgotten any of his shortcomings or embarrassing incidents as a player, tries to teach James Harden to have a short memory. Barkley does a good job of showing Harden how it's done, but he needs some help from Scottie Pippen to seal the deal.
In the ad, Pippen jokes that he is the greatest player to ever wear a Chicago Bulls uniform.
Pippen won six NBA championships with the Bulls. On most teams, that would be enough for him to be considered the greatest player in franchise history. However, some guy named Michael Jordan did help Pippen get those six rings.
Foot Locker has come up with some good ads in the past, but this new commercial may be the best of the bunch.
