Nike Air Flight Lite x Gerald Wilkins x Marty Funkhouser
The last time I was a New York Knicks fans, Gerald Wilkins was their starting shooting guard. That said, #21 repped Nike’s “Flight” line of basketball kicks and his commercials usually displayed the fact that like his brother Dominique, Gerald had serious hops. The above commercial for the Air Flight Lite, at the time (1991) the “lightest Nike basketball shoe on earth.” The point of this background is to now point out that dude that takes a serious L in the aformentioned commercial is none other than Bob Einstein aka Super Dave Osborne aka Marty Funkhouser from Curb Your Enthusiasm. How great is that?
