For the third consecutive year, Foot Locker has debuted new work for the NBA Draft as part of its ongoing #Approved campaign. 

This year’s installment, created by BBDO New York, involves a special Father’s Day tie-in acknowledging one of this year’s biggest draft narratives: Lonzo Ball’s father LaVar becoming one of the most polarizing and controversial sports dads of all time.
The spot features Ball, along with fellow projected lottery picks Jonathan Isaacs, De’Aaron Fox, and Jayson Tatum, reflecting on the role their dads played helping them on their paths to draft night. And while most messages are heartfelt, Lonzo’s memories of LaVar show that their father/son relationship is definitely atypical. 

Directed by Kenny Herzog of O Positive, the spot debuted online and will air nationally on ESPN during the live broadcast of the 2017 NBA Draft on June 22.
