Jordan Brand is releasing a new low edition of the Air Jordan XX9 and it has teamed up with Foot Locker for a star-studded new ad that explains to one young fan why he will never be just like Russell Westbrook.

Among the list of naysayers in the commercial are Jalen Rose, TV’s Dr. Phil, ESPN Sports Science host John Brenkus and Dr. Sanjay Gupta.
