Let's just say the whole thing didn't go over well for his image as he proceeded to throw an entire city and fan base under the bus on live TV, choosing Miami as his new hoop home. How do you smooth over something that is the equivalent of calling a family meeting to announce you'll be divorcing your wife for your younger hotter mistress? Maybe not that bad but you get the point.

Anyhow, Nike released a new commerci...
