A not-so-grand circle of critics--who for years have been scoring media points by taking NBA superstar Kevin Durant to task--is finally silenced when the Golden State Warriors win the NBA world championship with Durant named the Finals MVP.

Titled “Debate This,” the Nike spot debuted right after Game 5 of the Finals on Monday night (6/12), in which the Warriors clinched the title. 

Tim Godsall of Anonymous Content directed the commercial for Wieden+Kennedy, Portland, Ore.
