The line could be nice though

I really like this as an Idea.
But whats with the orange sky?
it could have run into an interseting series if the artwork was better.
I'm suspecting it's a stock photo cobble together.

Honestly, I cannot tolerate ads with balls, dicks..etc It's just plain unamusing.

It's true. The game requires balls. Haha, a double meaning on "balls" to mean guts and determination. but why WILSON balls? are their balls bouncier? do they last longer? are they more firm? How do their balls taste? give me something in the body copy for me to buy these balls and not somebody else's balls. Like Spalding. I've always fancied Spalding - they make the official balls for the NBA, then again, those nice Nike balls come in cool colors with a cool swoosh logo. what have your balls got?

Is that a pun in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me? How does a difficult basketball shot make me want to buy this product? Could I make this shot only with this brand?
