LeBron James Stars in Sprite ‘First Home Game’ Ad (VIDEO)

by October 27, 2014

Coming back home continues to be the theme for LeBron James and the companies he endorses.

Back in September, James and Sprite surprise kids in Akron when they re-modelled a playground. Above is the commercial that emerged:

LeBron James’ first home court game appearance won’t be in Cleveland; because it was in his hometown of Akron, Ohio on September 25th. Sprite worked with city officials to turn Patterson Park, which hadn’t been updated in more than 20 years, into a blank canvas for New York urban artist Futura to transform. Once the court was transformed, Sprite held a pickup game and basketball clinic for the community to enjoy. That’s when LeBron showed up to celebrate the new courts and his arrival back home.
