LeBron James "Rise" Nike Commercial Debuts




I'm not exactly coming at this from an unbiased perspective, but I think this might be one of the best Nike commercials I've ever seen (and PooZ and I once did a series of posts on Nike commercials over on AdamNPooZ.com, so I don't make a claim like that lightly). It's definitely the best LeBron James commercial ever.

LeBron "Rise"

What should I do?
Should I admit that I've made mistakes?
Should I remind you that I've done this before?
Should I give you a history lesson?
What should I do?
Should I tell you how much fun we had?
So... this went well...
Should I really believe I ruined my legacy?
What should I do? What should I do? What should I do?
Should I have my tattoo removed?
Wanna see my shiny new shoes?
Should I just sell shoes?
Should I tell you "I am not a role model"?
Hi Chuck.
Seriously, what should I do?
Should I say I'm a championship chaser?
Did it for the money? Rings?
Should I be who you want me to be?
Should I accept my role, as a villain?
Maybe I should just disappear.
Should I stop listening to my friends?
They're my friends.
Should I try acting?
[You just gotta deal with the heat, man. Be patient. After awhile, the temperature drops, and everything is free and easy.]
Should I be writing this down?
[Uh-huh.]
Should I make you laugh?
Should I read you a soulful poem?
Shoot me with your words. 
You may cut me with your eyes. 
But still, like air, I'll rise. 
Or should we just clear the deck, start over?
Coming through here!
What should I do?
Should I be who you want me to be?

Then again, when we're talking all-time great Nike commercials, in my mind everything gets measured against this. So, which one do you prefer?
