After showing his support for Colin Kaepernick, it should come as no surprise that LeBron James and his "I Promise" school are featured in Nike's latest commercial voiced by the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback.

In the commercial, James is shown at the opening of the school in Akron, Ohio and Kaepernick notes how the Lakers superstar is not just the "best basketball player on the planet" as he's "bigger than basketball."

"Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything. #JustDoIt":📹 http://v.duta.us/BzlWqwAA /video/1

The message of the commercial is exactly why James decided to open a school in hometown, a point he noted at its opening.

“As a kid from Akron, Ohio myself, I remember walking these streets,” James said. “People always ask me, why a school? Because I know exactly what these 240 kids are going through. I know the streets that they walk. I know the trials and tribulations they go through. I know the ups, the downs, everything that they dream about. I know all the nightmares that they have, because I’ve been there.”

“Kids just want to know if we care about them,” he continued. “They have the dreams, they have the aspirations … they just need to know that someone cares. And that’s why we’re doing this today. That’s why we are going to continue to do things like this, because we want these kids over here, these kids over here, and all the kids in this city, and hopefully beyond the city lines, beyond the state lines, and beyond the country lines to understand that this is something because we care about their future.

“By me being able to put something like this together, I want people to know that these kids should have the same opportunity as everyone else. And that’s what’s most important."
