Draymond Green is one of the most indispensable players for the Golden State Warriors. But Green is often overshadowed by his superstar teammates Steph Curry and Klay Thompson. That has to be a frustrating situation for the All Star, but he’s getting some advice–from two of the greatest third wheels of all time.
In a hilarious new commercial for Foot Locker, Michelle Williams and Horace Grant offer the NBA star some much-needed advice on how to handle being famous–but not quite as famous as the people you work with. Williams, of course, was a member of Destiny’s Child alongside Kelly Rowland and Beyonce–and she was often the butt of jokes as the group’s least-famous member. Hoops fans know that Grant won three championships in the 1990s with the Chicago Bulls, but never became as well-known as Scottie Pippen and some guy named Michael Jordan.
Grant offers Green (who doesn’t recognize the former NBA star until he puts on his trademark goggles) some encouraging words about “standing out” when Williams interjects.
“He’s right, you know,” she says.
“Actually, I’m OK for right now,” Grant replies–mistaking the Grammy winner for a waitress. “Draymond–would you care for something?”
“I don’t work here,” Williams says, annoyed. “I’m Michelle Williams.”
Both Green and Grant stare blankly.
“Of Destiny’s Child,” Williams adds. Grant and Green finally recognize who she is–before Green innocently asks if Williams for an introduction to…you know who.
Green has to adjust to a new All-Star on the Warriors this coming season, with former Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Kevin Durant signing with the team in the offseason. The Warriors set the NBA record for wins last year, but lost to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in a thrilling seven-game NBA Finals.
But we’re sure the Warriors will figure all this out. In the meantime, check out the hilarious clip above.
