BOSTON — We don’t only miss LeBron James for his back-to-back championships with the Miami Heat.
We miss him because he’s kind when he doesn’t need to be.
Last night in the Cleveland Cavaliers game at the Boston Celtics, Bron got off the court to give a special greeting to a Special Olympian standing courtside.
After a second quarter timeout, James broke from the Cavs’ huddle and went straight to 16-year-old Aaron Miller, who was born with severe brain damage.
James grabbed Miller’s hand then neck in acknowledgment for the boy’s plight, as if to say: “You da man, too!”
Miller’s face couldn’t hide his excitement.
See the gorgeous, silent exchange below:
James said he spotted Miller on the scoreboard Jumbotron. He then noticed Miller was wearing a pair of Nike sneakers James helped design specially for people with disabilities.
James said he felt an instant kinship with the boy without having met him.
By the way, the Cavs beat the Celtics 89-77!
