Before he was even out of high school, LeBron James was already a household name, and by the time he was taken number 1 overall in the NBA Draft, the expectations for greatness were inevitable. It seemed that he couldn’t possibly live up to the hype, but he actually quickly exceeded it, not just with his play on the court, but the mature way that he handled himself off the floor. The eighteen year-old was built like a hardened veteran in his prime and his skill-set and athleticism had arguably never been seen in a player of his stature. As we follow LeBron’s ongoing quest for an NBA ring, the King James legend grows daily. Since he first came into our awareness, we have all been “witnesses,” and in their latest commercial, Nike Basketball lets some other awed witnesses tell their stories. Keep reading after the jump to see the ad in its entirety, and feel free to share your own “witness” accounts with the rest of us.
