Thabo’s TV commercial: Would a Thunder phenom convince you to buy a new car?

It’s fashionable among many of the NBA cognescenti to knock small-market franchises for the lack of endorsements that are available in the league’s largest cities.

But Oklahoma City guard Thabo Sefolosha is the beneficiary of playing for the Thunder. Much like Gary Neal and Tiago Splitter, Sefolosha is the face of a auto dealership commercial that is receiving huge local airtime during the playoffs.

During a survey of the four major commercial TV stations, I watched Sefolosha’s commercial five different times.

And I wondered why I should hog all of the fun of watching this commercial – particularly after Sefolosha’s huge performance in Game 3  when he produced a season-high 19 points, six steals, six rebounds and a suffocating defensive effort against Tony Parker.

And here, courtesy of You, is one of Sefolosha’s commercials for Norman Dodge in the Oklahoma City area.
