adidas T-Mac 3 “Lesson” Remembers McGrady’s TV Commercials

adidas T-Mac 3 “Lesson” Remembers McGrady’s TV Commercials

If you know about Tracy McGrady, you know. A once-in-a-generation athlete who, unfortunately, succumbed to injuries in his prime. The two-time NBA scoring leader, 7x All-Star had it all, but despite teammates like Vince Carter, Grant Hill, and Yao Ming, the stars never quite aligned for that elusive championship. Because of this, T-Mac is often overlooked when talking about bonafide hoopers of the past few decades (the same notion can be applied to Penny Hardaway, too). But, like Penny, if you saw T-Mac play, you knew he was special and adidas knew it, too.

Alas, the adidas T-Mac signature line skyrocketed in popularity, thanks in part to the Three Stripe’s marketing messaging thrust behind the superstar. For the T-Mac 3, adidas stripped it down and focused just on T who delivered a series of offensive moves, each of which brought an individual lesson. There’s humor and athleticism, but it’s simplicity, both the do design and the cinematography, that made a striking impression. Now, decades later, adidas will revisit this concept with a special-edition T-Mac 3 “Lesson” that, like the ad spots, keeps things simple whilst highlighting an extraordinary key feature — the medial holographic that reads “Lesson” in the same stylized font as the commecricals.

Grab a look in detail for yourself below, and expect to see the adidas T-Mac 3 “Lesson” land at select retailers on November 1st.
