LeBron Assists Special Needs!
This NBA 2016 season the Golden State Warriors are the talk of the town. Lead by Stephen Curry they are playing the game at a historic level, and for many Curry is the best and most charismatic player in the NBA.
This leaves LeBron James a bit in the shadows, which is strange since we haven’t seen a player of his capability ever before. It is a lesson to all of us about time, how it moves on eventually lifting younger people into the spotlight, and leaving those growing more mature to redefine themselves.
This film snapshot of LeBron James publicly congratulating a Special Olympics athlete, and expressing a bond with him tells me LeBron is going to be special beyond basketball. The authentic expression of connection with this young man who was wearing shoes LeBron designed for kids with special needs is nothing short of breathtaking.
Take a look and see if you conclude what I have concluded, which is LeBron James is bigger than basketball, and understands the value of his brand to lift up and include those with special needs.
This may be the most important assist of his career, and one which I hope other players imitate!
