Plot / Description

"Sprite Presents: LeBron James' First Home Game" 
LeBron James' first home court game appearance won’t be in Cleveland; because it was in his hometown of Akron, Ohio on September 25th. Sprite worked with city officials to turn Patterson Park, which hadn't been updated in more than 20 years, into a blank canvas for New York urban artist Futura to transform. Once the court was transformed, Sprite held a pickup game and basketball clinic for the community to enjoy. That's when LeBron showed up to celebrate the new courts and his arrival back home.

Voiceover

The big breaking news - LeBron James is heading back to the Cleveland Cavaliers. 
Mark the man's words, "I am coming home." 
History was wrong. The king has not left the building. 
The hero is back home. 
The kid from Akron has officially arrived in Cleveland. 
That first home game is gonna be electric. 
He got his rings, you know, and not it's time for him to come home. 
I think his first home game is gonna be a meaningful game. 
That first home game's gonna be special. 
It's gonna be just like old times. 
It comes from here. From these people. Cause their passion, their love drives me. They say home is where your heart is. My heart is here. It's always been. This is my first home game. 
Yo, I got next. 
 
(Lyrics) 
So I, I bet my life, I bet my life 
I bet my life on you 
I, I bet my life, I bet my life 
I bet my life on you
