We’re a couple of weeks away from the release of Taken 3 in theaters, and ESPN is promoting the film a little bit by combining it with a promotion for their NBA Christmas schedule on ABC. In this trailer, Liam Neeson calls John Wall to tell him that the Knicks will beat the Wizards on Christmas. Yep. That’s totally plausible.
I’d assume this trailer was filmed before the bottom completely fell out for the Knicks. New York has won one game since Thanksgiving. They got thumped at the Garden by the Wizards in early-November. Meanwhile, Washington’s lost one game in December, and is currently the #2 seed in the East.
Yeah, this isn’t exactly “Liam Neeson vs the Albanian mob”. Good luck, Knicks.
