For years, basketball experts and fans have wondered why Dominique Wilkins and Patrick Ewing never won an NBA championship. Were they too selfish? Did they choke under pressure? Or was it simply a case of better teams (Celtics, Pistons, Bulls, et al.) and better players (Larry Bird, Michael Jordan, et al.) standing in their way?

This commercial suggests that 'Nique and Ewing were simply too concerned with getting the last can of Minute Maid. It also proves, yet again, that Isiah Thomas is a dick.

This commercial must have had some impact on Isiah's coaching/GM philosophy.

I also remember another Minute Maid commercial where the three of them were playing crochet or something

You know, 'Nique has half a chance to get Isiah, but the only way Ewing's catching him is if he does what he did in the paint - packs his bags and travels.

Isiah is many uncomplimentary things, but when he was a player, he was freakin fast. That skill will be useful in New York sometime in the near future.

Isiah Thomas is a fuck...And to steal a soft drink from two players that deserve it way more (Perhaps the Minute Maid represents a championship allegorically), just proves how much of a fuck he is.

This is much better than the video with Isiah and the Fresh Prince playing basketball. What was the name of those shoes? Air Fresh?

Anyways, good find on this video. Maybe next time we can see AC Green and Magic Johnson in the Trojan condoms commercial.
