WATCH: Dwyane Wade’s New Nike Ad Is Less Angsty, More Awesome Than LeBron’s

Not to be outdone by his teammate LeBron James, a new Jordan Brand commercial featuring Dwyane Wade has been released today, just hours before the Miami Heat begin their quest to "Dominate Another Day."
Wade is "Agent D3" (no longer the Flash) in this Tron inspired ad, playing up his futuristic James Bondness while accepting a mission "to bring the rings back to Miami."
What stands in his way? The "Snake Charmer, Illusionist, and the Green Gang." (Kobe? Orlando? Boston?).
The statement? Well, "Dominate Another Day" illustrates that Wade is, like LeBron, still the man. An alpha dog. On a mission for the title. But there is none of the existential confusion found in LeBron's Nike "Rise" spot, which was released yesterday.
Instead, we just get some cool, futuristic motobikin.'
The message here is a lot clearer than the (many) meanings of "Rise." "It's time to bring the rings back to Miami," Wade notes.
Championship: that's the goal here. Not to find oneself, just to ride a Kawasaki from the year 2052 and crash through a window.
Sometimes, that's all we really want to watch.
