WATCH: NBA’s latest ‘Gear Up’ ad spot, and Dwight Howard victimized by mannequin prank


The NBA will debut its latest ad spot during Spurs-Rockets Thursday night, but we’ve got a sneak preview of it right here. It’s a youth-focused apparel campaign for NBA featuring Dwight Howard, Jeremy Lin, Damian Lillard, Andrew Wiggins, and Mike Conley.

During the filming of the spot, Howard appeared to be genuinely victimized by a mannequin prank that’s a little different from those we’ve seen in the past.
