HE’S BACK U.S. OPEN TENNIS WITH DON KING
Why NOT put Don King’s face
on the tennis BALLS at the
U.S. Open opening next
week in New York City
it’s a GREAT idea
Even better than making Don King the creative genius of Nike’s U.S. Open TV commercials. Since King has absolutely nothing to do with Tennis it would be even more imaginative to feature his face on the Tennis balls. GUARANTEED it would get even way more attention than the Nike ads and likely for far less than the costs of the commercials.
Think it’s a CRAZY idea well
as usual think again it is
And let’s get the dumb question out of the way. Having a face on the Tennis balls is not going to detract from the players’ game . They won’t even notice ( see photo above ). And so what if they did it would be equal they will ALL use the OFFICIAL balls with Don King’s face on it. Even better. We think it might improve their play. If a player is a Don King FAN they will be inspired. If they loathe him they will take pleasure in whacking him all over the Court.
Black Box what is this all about
maybe you got hit in the head
with a tennis ball and you
were knocked senseless
NOOOOOO Nike is paying Don King the BIG bucks as their “creative” partner in fashioning a media campaign to deliver the message Nike is trying to brand the U.S. Open with “Grapple in the Apple .” Maybe Nike got hit in the head with a tennis ball. Their ideas for marketing this year’s U.S. Open and selling LOTS of Nike gear is to present it as a “boxing match” and even more just highlighting two players Nadal and Federer.
Of course it is dumb but DUMBER is paying King the BIG bucks to consult with them on succeeding in presenting the U.S. Open as a boxing match. What is there to know. Then again if you are Nike you can do anything and it does not matter you win the Dough.
Still paying the U.S. Open to put King’s picture on the Tennis balls is far better use of their billions in profit. Is there any doubt it would be FRONT page in the media. Whereas this story of King consulting for Nike on the U.S. Open is a yawn.

DON KING GETS SLAMMED AT OPEN
And the idea gets even better Don King can be a “proof of concept.” Why stop with King. Why stop with Tennis. There are so many Sports and so so many balls. What about Michael Phelps . MICHAEL PHELPS face on any ball it does not matter the Sport.
But Baseball is probably best. The ONLY Sport where fans get dozens of balls each game. Can you imagine Phelps face on ALL Major League Baseballs . Every game for every team would be a sell OUT as fans dream of catching a foul ball or a home run ball or a even a ball a player or the bat person might throw into the Stands with PHELP’S face on it !!!
We’re on to something here
somebody get King’s number
and somebody get us Nike
before somebody else gets
to them with this idea !
and get us PHELPS !!
FIRST KING THEN PHELPS
