We are starting to see the results of the new Adidas ad campaign.
This year’s ad campaign features some of the biggest names in the NBA.
Among the new ads, the big winner is NBA All-Star point guard Ricky Rubio.
While he may not be a household name like Steph Curry, his brand is worth at least $6 billion, and he’s currently the most valuable player in the league.
He has been a consistent performer in the face of the competition, including a breakout season in the 2016-17 season with the Los Angeles Clippers.
While he’s been known to get a little hot, he’s proven to be a tough-love defender and can play with any team in the world.
The most recent season, he averaged 23.5 points and 7.1 assists per game.
Another player to watch is Kentucky’s Karl-Anthony Towns, who averaged 17.8 points and 8.6 rebounds per game last season.
He’ll likely be on the court alongside Rubio and Towns when the Heat visit Miami.
NBA All-Stars are the best of the best, and they are often the biggest stars of their league.
The players are all on the same team.
So when it comes to the NBA All Stars, who is better, the Miami Heat or Ricky Rubio?
The Heat are expected to take the first spot in the 2018-19 ad campaign with their star-studded lineup of Dwyane Wade, Hassan Whiteside, Josh Richardson and Bam Adebayo.
The most important player on the roster is Miami’s Dwyans top scorer, Goran Dragic, and the only player on this team who will likely get more playing time this season is Hassan Whitesides.
His presence will undoubtedly be critical to the Heat’s success in the upcoming season.
While Whitesides is averaging 15.4 points and 10.8 rebounds per contest, he’ll likely only see half the minutes.
He’s going to need to do a better job defending the rim and getting to the free throw line to be the player he is.
Whitesides, like Rubio, is a versatile player who can fill a variety of roles.
As for Rubio, he is a big part of Miami’s success this season.
The Heat have the second-best defensive rating in the Western Conference behind the Golden State Warriors, and Rubio has been the leader in rebounding and assists.
Rubio is averaging 12.3 points per game this season, which is a career-high.
While this is a great time to be an NBA All Star, Rubio needs to improve his defensive ability to stay in the conversation for the MVP.
