The LeBrons is a series of live-action television commercials, promoting a line of Nike shoes, and featuring four different versions of LeBron James (Kid, Athlete, Business, and Wise). Produced around 2006-2007, these commercials have spawned an animated web series of the same name in 2011.

These commercials include:

These commercials provide examples of:

  • Adrenaline Time: Business diving backwards in slow motion at the end of the Swimming Pool commercial.
  • Animated Adaptation: It was adapted into The LeBrons, an animated web series of the same name.
  • Catchphrase: "I'm gonna call you back."
  • Chroma Key: Used on all of the LeBrons, unless one of them would be filmed without green screening.
  • Dream Sequence: In the Butter commercial, Kid briefly has one, in which an NBA player is repeatedly throwing a huge meatball into a basketball hoop and a cheerleader is jumping. Then it was interrupted by Biz, who tells Kid to pass the butter.
