John Wall and Liam Neeson team up for awesome Christmas Day games promo

Many people know Liam Neeson from his role in Taken and being a general bad-ass in almost every movie he’s been in since 2008 (when Taken was first released).

Of course ESPN has the TV rights for those games and it’s a good thing this was first commercial because so few people will want to watch the hapless Knicks play the Wizards. Neeson steps back into his role as Bryan Mills, threatening the point guard with the Knicks and even guarantees a win. Here it is in all its 30-second glory:
