It’s the most wonderful time of the year, everybody.  No, I’m not talking about the holiday season when even the most snarkiest of Internet trolls try to be nice (because ethics in games journalism).  It’s time for The Week of Greatness, Foot Locker’s love letter to the sneaker community as some of the hottest releases of the year come together in one heat-filled (and wallet-crushing) event.

To celebrate the occasion, Foot Locker has once again tapped into the world of sports (and in the case of one spot, sports entertainment) to put together a handful of clips for us to laugh, cry and laugh again.  Joining Foot Locker regular James Harden are Derrick Rose, Tim Duncan, everybody’s favorite boxer Manny Pacquiao and everybody’s favorite wrestler Daniel Bryan CM Punk John Cena all showing their excitement for the Week of Greatness.

For a detailed look at kicks are dropping during the Week of Greatness, check out Foot Locker’s release calendar here.

Also, wouldn’t it be great if the Nike Kobe 9 Elite finally came full circle and Pacquiao – who helped inspire the high-cut kicks – wore it in his fight this weekend?
