LeBron James is currently playing in the 20th season of his NBA career. The Los Angeles Lakers superstar has enjoyed an incredibly decorated career that has seen him grow to be synonymous with dedication and longevity, and his best attributes have helped him be one of the greatest players in the sport’s history as well as one of the best players to currently play the game.

Even at the age of 37, LeBron is still one of the best players in the NBA and it was no surprise when he came back for the 20th season of his career. James boasts of a set of career accolades including four NBA Championships, four MVP awards and multiple All Star Selections – and is looking to expand that tally further as he is into the 20th season of his decorated NBA stint.

So naturally, one of the best athletes in the world going into a milestone year meant brands would be very interested in using him for their promotional activities. To nobody’s surprise, Nike produced a commercial featuring LeBron James based on him going into the 20th season of his career – and it has been a trending commercial since it came out before the season began.

In the commercial created by Wieden + Kennedy, Nike aimed to show LeBron going head to head with time – in fact, literally. LeBron went up against “Father Time” himself in the gym, the court and the Karaoke bar – while many people asked who is playing Father Time.

The Aquaman and Game of Thrones actor is nearly unrecognisable as he donned regal robes in Crown Purple and a Gandalf beard in the advertisement. Fans were surprised to find out that it is actually Momoa behind the look, further adding to the advertisement’s booming publicity.

Twenty years at the top of the game is a big achievement, and it is no surprise that Nike wanted to cash in on the unbelievable achievement of their premier athlete.
