SHARE LeBron James teams with McDonalds, stars in remake of classic Michael Jordan commercial

First LeBron James takes Michael Jordan’s jersey number. Now he’s taking his commercial meme.

The Cleveland Cavaliers superstar and McDonald’s Corp. have agreed to a multi-year endorsement deal. Financial terms of the contract aren’t currently known, but James has already filmed his first ad with the company.

It’s a remake of the classic “The Showdown” commercial, and it will air before the Super Bowl.

That spot featured Michael Jordan and Larry Bird playing a game of H-O-R-S-E for a Big Mac and fries. That’s just how NBA players settled things back then.
