After the classmate was teased for the shoes he wore to school one day, the LeBron fan went home and grabbed his pair of LeBron James basketball shoes. The following day, he gave them to the bullied boy to ease the pain of being mocked.
The touching moment was caught on tape. “Here you go,” the gifter said. “I gave you a pair of shoes because you felt bad yesterday … I’m sorry, bro.”
The boy who received the LeBrons stood up and gave his generous classmate a huge hug before burying his head in his hands.
Not only are we all witnesses to this, but LeBron himself made sure to give the giver some props.
“You're going to great places kid for your generosity towards him,” James wrote on Instagram. “True leadership right there! #StriveForGreatness #IPROMISE.”
The King has ruled -- this is indeed greatness right here. LeBron would know.
