Men's Basketball

Home / Web / Adidas Basketball
AGENCY: Droga 5
CLIENT: Adidas Men’s Basketball
INDUSTRY: Consumer Products
YEAR: 2009

The Project

In 2007, Adidas launched the “Basketball is a Brotherhood” global media campaign featuring NBA All-Stars including Kevin Garnett (Boston Celtics), Tim Duncan (San Antonio Spurs), Gilbert Arenas (Washington Wizards), Dwight Howard (Orlando Magic), Josh Smith (Atlanta Hawks), Chauncey Billups (Detroit Pistons) and Tracy McGrady (Houston Rockets) to celebrate the contributions they make to their respective teams.

The over-arching message behind this entire media campaign was that while the players are part of a larger Brotherhood, each individual is responsible for doing his bit to strengthen the team as a whole.

In 2009, Droga 5 was retained to re-design of the Adidas Men’s Basketball website in order to showcase how Adidas Basketball footwear and apparel enhances the performance of their signature athletes and ultimately solidifies their Brotherhood.

The User Experience

“Basketball is a Brotherhood” aptly summarizes the team culture of basketball. It was also the key concept for the re-design of Adidas Basketball web site; the central hub of high-quality apparel, endorsed by top athletes who embody sportsmanship, professionalism, and the competitive spirit.

The strategic focus paired Adidas’ world-class footwear & athletic gear, with elite NBA athletes in an effort to increase brand recognition, while providing content that is easily accessed on multiple devices, platforms and social networks.

The centerpiece of the marketing campaign & redesigned website was an 11-episode web series shot at a summer basketball camp for 12 young players of the ‘shoot first, pass second’ mentality.

These young players knew that Adidas was running the camp, however they did not know that NBA All-Stars including Kevin Garnett, Tim Duncan, Gilbert Arenas, Dwight Howard, Chauncey Billups and Tracy McGrady would be coaching them.

As part of the “Basketball is a Brotherhood” digital initiative, the re-designed website would provide detailed consumer product information, e-commerce functionality, exclusive video content, and behind-the-scenes player blogs, in addition to customizable voicemails & text messages automatically configured to a subscriber’s phone.

Moreover, the site would also include:
