LeBron James lead a new star-studded Nike ad — also featuring Tiger Woods and Serena Williams — reminding people around the world that we’re still ‘fighting’ amid the COVID-19 outbreak.
LeBron James, 35, just slayed his new Nike ad. The Los Angeles Laker delivered an inspiring message about what we can learn from the world of professional sports as we navigate the global Coronavirus pandemic. “We’ve all been underestimated and counted out. In those moments we felt like it was over,” he began, narrating over old footage of him with the Cleveland Cavaliers after a near defeat. “We’ve all been underestimated and counted out. In those moments we felt like it was over,” he said, as Nike ambassadors Serena Williams, Tiger Woods, Raphael Nadal and Cristiano Rinaldo were also shown in game changing career moments.
“But it’s when we’re given no chance that we somehow found that list bit of strength to keep fighting,” LeBron continued in his motivational and uplifting message. “And then we did when no one thought we could — not even ourselves. We came back from the impossible, from being broken. We found a way when it seemed hopeless. We came back when we should have been long forgotten. And we did it time and time again,” he said, as the camera flashed to some of the athlete’s most memorable wins.
