Between Chris Bosh’s “Tall Justice” and this new ad for “Call of Duty: Black Ops” that features the one and only Kobe Bryant, the NBA has seen a dramatic spike in videos that feature players with guns. After the Gilbert Arenas/Javaris Crittenton saga, I’m sure David Stern is very, very happy to see that happening. Probably doing backflips about it.

As far as ads for video games go, this seems like a pretty good one, I guess. I’m not really an expert on the subject. At the very least, it’s got “Gimme Shelter,” which makes any action scene so much better. It’s an old Scorcese trick, and that guy usually knows what he’s doing.
