LeBron James got his ring, he got his piece of the Larry O'Brien trophy, and he got his Finals MVP. So what was the only thing missing?

A Nike tribute commercial, of course.

Nike gave one of the faces of its product the champion's treatment, airing a commercial moments after the Heat took down the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 5 of the Finals. The ad showcases James' high school career, his near-misses in past NBA Finals, and finally, his long-awaited win in the 2012 NBA championship.

As Nike tends to do, they nailed the commercial, titled "The Ring Maker."
