Just in time for tonight’s NBA Draft, Budweiser released a new spot called “The Undrafted”, featuring former New York Knicks star John Starks. The film tells the story of John’s path as an undrafted player in the NBA, in celebration of those who refuse to give up on making their dreams a reality — inside and outside of the NBA.

As we start another year for the NBA, Budweiser wants to both raise a toast to those players who will hear their name called on Draft Day tonight as well as the players, like John, who refuse to give up on making their dreams a reality. This film was created as a tribute to them and their hard work.

John Starks, New York Knicks Legend, “I never had the opportunity to hear my name called on Draft Day,” said John Starks, former New York Knicks star. “I carried that chip on my shoulder every single day, determined to work harder as I made a name for myself in the league. I’m glad I can share my story with Budweiser, reminding the next generation of players that their careers will not be defined by their draft positions; the journey is just beginning.”
