LeBron gets congratulations calls from celebs in Nike ad (VIDEO)

Warren Buffett often calls me after I really nail a blog post….

Nike had a LeBron James ad ready to go if he won a title (and another Finals MVP), as if you expected anything less.  While he’s a long way behind MJ LeBron sells more shoes for Nike than any other active player (yes, more than Kobe Bryant). When you sell that many shoes this kind of ad is an expected part of the package.

This is a clever ad with a number of celebrities — Spike Lee, Warren Buffet, Drake and others — offering congratulations to LeBron on the title. On an old-school answering machine. No doubt that’s exactly what LeBron has in his house.
