Moe Wagner featured in German Nike film, 'Helden'

Wizards center Moe Wagner was recently featured in a Nike Germany film entitled 'Helden', the German word for heroes. The piece is set to German composer Hans Zimmer's recreation of David Bowie's iconic song 'Heroes' with the aim to inspire the next generation of German athletes.

From Nike: "Heroes is about a new generation of German athletes who do their best not only on but also off the fields and racetracks and who are committed to their communities. For them, more than just victory is at the center - their goal is also to pave the way for others. We believe in a world in which everyone can be a hero and, through the power of sport, make a difference to others."

Wagner is joined in the film by German soccer stars Leroy Sané, Mario Götze, and Giulia Gwinn as well as boxer Zeina Nassar. Also featured are track and field stars Léon Schäfer and Gesa Krause as well as skateboarders Mobina and Melika Nazari.
