After test driving both a Ferrari 458 Spider and a Range Rover, Conley made the obvious decision and went with the Tesla Model S. He’ll be among the first NBA players to own the electric luxury sedan, and he’s helping establish Tesla as an automobile to aspire to.

With Lance Fresh along for the ride, Conley explains how back in “the day”, the car he aspired to own as a NBA star was always a Range Rover. But after spending some seat time in both the Ferrari and the Range Rover, Conley spent time driving the Tesla. It admittedly took the point guard some time to get used to the silence of the Tesla, but he eventually realized the electric luxury sedan was “something special.”

“The next time you see me, I’ll have one,” he said regarding the Model S. Conley joins a growing population of Tesla fans and owners, which includes the likes of Johnny Depp and Jay Z. With Tesla poaching sales from established luxury automakers, and big names choosing the Model S over even a Ferrari, no wonder the status quo is feeling a little shaken up.

As for Conley? What else can I say other than the point guard has great taste in automobiles.

    safest car in the world, sleekest looking car, one of the best looking cars on the road, its a spaceship/tank, computer on wheels thats street legal and can smoke the fastest sports cars and doesnt use any gas

    not a car on the planet that compares, and when you buy it your not just putting money into the pocket of some douche company, Elon Musk wants to change the world so your helping humanity by buying the best car ever made

  • Tesla Fan

    its the greatest car ever made

    • Green Globe

      Tesla the greatest car ever made? Hardly. The greatest car ever made is the 1973 BMW 2002 tii. O==[]==O

      -Cheers.

    This is incredible. The car itself is doing its commercial. This is probably one of the strongest type of commercials one auto manufacturer could wish for. Tesla paid $0 for this obviously. Crazy.

  • Tato

    Go Tesla.

    this is good. I’ve seen Connor Barwin of the Eagles driving around philly in his Model S a couple times. Athlete and musician endorsement of a product is much more influential than any Hollywood folks

    We just need Kim Kardashian to start driving one ;)
