vitaminwater’s Kobe vs. Lebron “The Great Debate” campaign
It’s official. As of today I am now an official voice for “The Great Debate” on Kobe vs. LeBron, the new ad campaign sponsored by vitaminwater. And I couldn’t be happier.
I do enjoy vitaminwater but I’m also excited to be part of this debate. Particularly since I firmly believe both Kobe and LeBron will lead the Lakers and Cavs, respectively, to the NBA Finals, providing the type of epic encounter we’ve failed to witness, arguably, since the days of Magic vs. Bird.
Sure, Isiah Thomas faced against Magic’s Lakers were significant. So was Michael Jordan going up against anybody because, well, he was Michael Jordan. But how many of us lamented that Isiah wasn’t Bird? That Magic, ultimately, was fading? That Jordan, even when faced against Magic in pursuit of his first NBA Championship, simply was devoid of an equal, a legitimate nemesis, through all six of his world titles?
The answer would be, “too often.”
But not now.
In Kobe vs. LeBron, we have the world’s two best players. Assuming both advance to the NBA Finals, it’ll also consist of the two best teams this season, led by the league’s two best players.
One is a 3-time champion starving for another title — and the chance to cement a personal legacy that won’t have Shaq’s name attached to it. The other is in search of his first Championship, clearly on a mission to clarify that a new era has officially arrived, willing and eager to put aside his recent league-MVP honors for the coveted ring that truly defines greatness.
It’s Kobe vs. LeBron. Who are you picking?
What time? What moment? Who truly epitomizes greatness in your mind?
Stay tuned! I plan on chiming in via tweets, Vitamin Water’s Fan page, right here on my website, and who knows where else.
Stick around and join me. So we’ll all enjoy the right together.
