I don’t care which NBA team you root for, what LeBron James did for a Special Olympian on Tuesday night was something we can all get behind.
When James noticed on the jumbotron that the Boston Celtics were honoring high school student Aaron Miller for being named the MVP of a recent Special Olympics event, the Cavaliers megastar knew just what to do.
Not only did LeBron take the time to go over to meet Miller during the game, but when the game concluded he took it a step further by taking off his shoes and giving them to him.
“He also had my shoes on,” James said, via ESPN. “I designed those shoes for kids with conditions where they can’t tie their own shoestrings, and he had a pair on. Those shoes that he had on are made for kids that can’t tie their own shoes, and it’s just one strap. When I saw his story, it was just like, I don’t know, I felt like I was a part of him. Just showing my respect, gave him my shoes. It was well received by him. It was not for you guys or the fans. It was for him.”
Way to go LeBron, this is a moment that many of us will remember for a long time.
