LeBron James brings girl with cancer to Heat pregame warmups (Video)


When LeBron James left the Cleveland Cavaliers, it was easy to hate him and vilify him as a traitor and a mercenary. But after helping the United Stats win a gold medal at the London Olympics in 2012 and wining his inevitable titles, fans have started to warm back up to LeBron and now it seems he can’t do any wrong.

The latest gesture by LeBron was towards a young girl named Ebony, who has diagnosed with stage four cancer recently. While she is fighting a battle LeBron doesn’t know how to combat, he still stepped up in a legendary way to make sure Ebony had then night of her life at the Miami Heat game this weekend.

LeBron then posted this touching message to his Instagram account:

Tonight I had the privilege of meeting and making someone dream come dream. Basketball has put me in position that I will never take for granted. Being a hero to this girl Ebony is the reason that I keep going every single day! She was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer out of nowhere towards the end of last year and force her to be home schooled and away from her friends. But didn’t stop her from doing what she loves more than anything and that’s playing basketball at Verona High outside of Milwaukee. Ebony your strength, courage and energy is out of this world and u will win and defeat this. I just know it! Love you forever and I got your back and front! #EbonyMetLeBron #CancerWho #EbonyEqualsStrong #StriveForGreatness

It used to be easy to hate LeBron James for leaving the Cavaliers and burring his fans, but it’s clear that everyone has matured since than and it’s now impossible to ever hate LeBron the way we once did.
