LeBron James finally won his first ring as the Miami Heat took out the Oklahoma City Thunder in the 2012 NBA Finals.  Naturally, Nike had an ad ready to go to congratulate him.  Not going to lie, it was a pretty good ad.

The ad did a great job of showing how much LeBron James had to overcome to win his first ring.  He was anointed as a prodigy who was expected to win a title.  When it did not come right away, people got angry.  However, LeBron James took his time and used all of those failures to help him reach the pinnacle.

If you still hate LeBron James and you claim to be a basketball fan, you need a new sport.  If you can not appreciate what the man does on the court, you have issues.  He is probably the most talented player to ever play the game.  He can do things that no one in history could even attempt.  He is like a hybrid of all the past greats.

This Nike ad does a great job of summing up everything about LeBron James that you need to know.  He had his downs and his struggles, but he was able to overcome them to get his first ring.  He truly deserved to win it after his play this last season.  He dominated the court like no one in history.  Thanks to Nike for making an ad that helps sum all of that up.
