Nike’s newest commercial takes pickup games to the next level

Tuesday July 14th, 2015

Nike has unveiled a new commercial that features an epic day of pickup sports in the life of a young athlete.

Titled "Short a Guy," the ad features a hero who finds himself drawn into pickup games in everything from basketball to soccer to lacrosse. It has such stars as Mike Trout, Andrew Luck and Mia Hamm.

After a long day of running, the young man finds himself back at the basketball courts with one more challenge, squaring off in a game against Pelicans star Anthony Davis.
