LeBron James Leaves Mid-Game Huddle to Congratulate Special Olympian
Remember when LeBron James was cast as a villain after leaving Miami? Well, his transformation back to good guy is complete.
James cemented his hero status during Tuesday's game at Boston when he walked away from a team huddle to say hello to a Special Olympian who was being honored.
James had noticed the boy, Aaron Miller, on the Jumbotron and because he's the most electrifying basketball player on the planet he's allowed to bail out on huddles, whereas other players would probably get fined for their insubordination.
As James said after the game, "This game is so much more than basketball." James' court vision was also on display. He said he noticed Miller was wearing a shoe he designed for kids who can't tie their own laces.
Leaving the huddle hardly an adverse effect on the Cavaliers. They coasted past the Celtics, 89-77.
