PHILADELPHIA, PA (CBS) — With the NBA Draft upon us, it is time to add a new crop of stars to the league. All of these NBA hopefuls are hoping to show their star potential on the court, but it can’t hurt to have a little personality off the hardwood as well.

Dante Exum, a point guard prospect from Australia, is already on his way to giving people a glimpse of his personality. Exum, 18, has appeared in a series of advertisements for Adidas that show that the little known sensation from ‘Down Under,’ has quite the charismatic personality.

The five commercials are titled “Life Changes After the Draft,” and show a humorous take on life for an NBA hopeful right before his name gets called.

Check out “Life Changes After the Draft: Dorky Neighbor,” featuring Exum below: 

Despite the fact that many people are a bit unfamiliar with his game, experts are slotting in Exum as a lock in the top 5 and many pundits see the Sixers picking at 3 as a possible suitor. Exum has a connection to Brett Brown due to his time coaching in Australia.

While you may have never seen Exum play, at least now you know what they call sneakers in Australia.
