VIDEO: Spike Lee, Warren Buffett, Dr. Dre congratulate LeBron in ad

A series of celebrities and sports legends including Spike Lee, Warren Buffett, Dr. Dre, Drake, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski and Bill Russell  call LeBron James to congratulate him in a new ad from Nike.

  • Hey, look. We're pretendng Dr. Dre is still relevant. 
  • Having Phil Knight on a Nike commercial is the most meta event in commercial history. It's like a Community episode. 
  • Bill Russell. Chills. 
My big disappointment, though, was the ending. Here's how it should have ended.
