You can’t not love Matthew Dellavadova. He’s a grinder. He’s a hard worker. He doesn’t quit. He’s a guy who gets by more on sheer will and hard work than athleticism. He can shoot pretty well too. He stepped up in the 2015 NBA Finals when Kyrie Irving went down with an injury and helped a battered Cavs team take two from the Warriors by playing tough defense and hitting threes. He signed a 4-year, $38 million dollar deal with the Milwaukee Bucks this offseason, an extremely impressive achievement for any NBA player … especially one who wasn’t drafted.
He’s also got a signature shoe from Peak. It’s a low-top. It looks like a Kobe 8. It’s not really ugly, but much like Matthew Dellavedova himself, it’s not outright spectacular. It definitely falls in the “generic” category when it comes to signature basketball shoes.
What’s even better than the shoe is the new commercial from Peak to go along with it, entitled “I’m Ready”. The tone is little too serious, and as a result it’s somewhat awkward in a hilarious way. Delly talks about his upbringing, work ethic, and game, all over a very serious backing instrumental track.
The shoe isn’t available just yet, but if you want to live like Matthew Dellavedova, you can pre-order it in January. Only time will tell how it is for hooping … but at least until we can find that out, we’ve got this funny-ass commercial to tide us over.
