What do rap singer Future, tennis star Serena Williams, and a group of four star struck youth all have in common? They all want quality time with NBA All-star LeBron James.
In the Nike basketball video “Bring Your Game,” LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Paul George, Kobe Bryant, Anthony Davis, Kyrie Irving, and Elena Delle Donne, show a few youth just how much attitude goes into their games and how much practice pays off.
A road trip
The video follows four youth, Peanut, Sean, Toni and Angel, on their quest to find their favorite NBA or WNBA player.
The youth need time to learn what makes their favorite players tick. After hopping across the county and spending time with NBA players, Durant, George, Bryant, Davis, Irving, and WNBA player, Elena Delle Donne, Peanut, Sean, Toni and Angel learn a bit about each players’ personalities not seen on the court.
LeBron James doesn’t have a problem opening the doors of his home to the youth, although he’s curious as to how they made it past his home security system. The fab four hope to narrow their choice down of who’s the greatest, and believe that after hanging out with James that his relaxed style will be convincing enough to surpass all the other players they’ve seen. However, when James passes up a chance to hear the latest tune from Future and volley with Serena Williams, his focus and consistency appear to be too uncool for the foursome. Furthermore, James’ choice of dessert is a cake made of Spirulina, Kale, and Ginger. So uncool!
To bring your ‘A’ game, stay focused
The video released by Nike will inspire youth who look at the surface of game performance but fail to look at preparation that’s required.
Actually, if you’re a youth involved in sports and aim to be great, you don’t have to worry about being too serious and forfeit all your leisure time (or favorite snack) right now. By focusing on bringing your best attitude at whatever you do, the results will show.
