Good story today in the Wall Street Journal about NBA players and web advertising. Players have had their own websites for several years now, but web ads are a growing new trend in the league.
Tornoto forward Chris Bosh created a 78-second spot promoting his All-Star candidacy. According to the Journal, Bosh used a handheld digital camera and spent about $20 on the piece, which took an hour to record.
Phoenix guard Steve Nash went one step further. His 82-second spot is an endorsement for Nike, however, the apparel company had very little input in the production. It's a very cool ad that shows Nash's personality.
New Orleans Hornets guard Chris Paul will begin airing a season-long series of webisodes on his website CP3TV.com on Jan. 24.
