The Dallas Mavericks are very good at basketball, but they are amazing at making promotional videos, and the team's newest work continues its years of video genius, putting together a reboot of legendary rap group Run-D.M.C. with Dirk Nowitzki, Monta Ellis, and Chandler Parsons.
The Mavs nail the look and cadence of mid-80's rap, if not the actual talent, but that is secondary to the joys of seeing Monta Ellis in a bucket hat with thick, square lens glasses.
It was really only a matter of time before the Würzburg hip-hop scene got its proper respect from the mainstream, and it looks like that time is now.
