Like most kids growing up during Michael Jordan's reign of dominance over the NBA, Elena Delle Donne, Jayson Tatum and Zion Williamson probably saw the legendary "Be Like Mike" Gatorade commercial.

The ad launched Jordan's unprecedented fame at the time and inspired countless young basketball players to strive to be the greatest in the world. And with The Last Dance documentary reminding the basketball world just how great Jordan was, Gatorade decided to re-launch the commercial with an added twist. 

This time around, Delle Donne, Tatum and Williamson each had a role to play. 

With Tatum and Williamson as two of the NBA's brightest young stars and Delle Donne, the reigning MVP and WNBA champion from 2019, Gatorade picked quite the cast of stars to recreate the classic commercial. 

Now, young basketball players today can experience the same feeling, players such as Delle Donne did when they first realized they wanted to be like Mike. Only this time, there are a few new faces they can look up to.
