Ever wonder what a pitch video for an NBA free agent looked like? Well, Mark Cuban and the Dallas Mavericks recently decided to reveal their video pitch for Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard.
The 2-minute spot features a comic book style pitch which shows a cartoon Dwight joining the Mavericks as the team’s “Super Hero”:
Cuban (who posted the video on his website) went onto discuss how his pitch meeting went with Dwight:
“I do have to say the meeting with Dwight was very interesting. He is a smart guy. Much smarter than people give him credit for,” wrote Cuban. “He is also a very, very good listener. Unlike most people, he spent far more time listening than talking. And he had the best response to an opening question that I have ever heard from a player, or anyone for that matter. When we asked him what his goal was, his response was very specific, ‘I want to be Epic.’
