MIAMI (AP) -- LeBron James has another Nike commercial out, detailing many of his favorite things about Miami.

The spot featuring the Miami Heat star was released Sunday. Dubbed "Training Day," it shows James riding his bike through Miami's streets, swimming in the ocean, training on the Heat practice court, jogging through the city and playing pickup basketball on an outdoor court.

Dozens of workout partners, many of them children, join in on most of his activities.

James tells The Associated Press that "the message was obvious -- I want people to feel like they're at one with me."

The release of the spot coincides with the LeBron 11, his latest signature shoe. James and the two-time defending NBA champion Heat open the season Tuesday against Chicago.
