Last night as the Lakers were playing against the Utah Jazz they led by a significant margin in the 4th quarter. Lebron James was no longer needed back in the game due to the game being out of reach for Utah. Moments after he was sitting down, James was approach by 2 children who were big fans of his. He graciously signed then gave each young child his game worn shoes.
Everything seemed to be turning into a good vibes kind of night for the Lakers, until James celebrated on the bench as his teammates continued to play outstanding defense! And then A Utah Jazz Announcer said "Why does he not have his shoes on?" and then proceeded to say “That’s some disrespect right there. Please. … This isn’t playground ball.” Moments later they were told of the kind gesture James did, by giving his sneakers to 2 young fans. Talk about a SMH moment to that Announcer.
