Andre Iguodala blasts Foot Locker NBA draft commercials

It seems the NBA Finals MVP is not a fan of the Foot Locker commercials that make light of young players' lives before and after they are drafted into the pros.

The Golden State Warriors' Andre Iguodala expressed his displeasure Thursday on Twitter.

Although he did not call the commercials out by name, it seemed apparent to which he was referring.

In the first commercial, incoming NBA rookie Emmanuel Mudiay buys his mom a house.

Iguodala was not pleased.

He explained why.

And then a second commercial aired, much like the first, only this time Mudiay hires his brother after being drafted.

Again Iguodala did not hold back.

Mudiay was selected by the Denver Nuggets with the No. 7 overall pick Thursday night.

A request for comment was not immediately returned by Foot Locker.
