Lebron James x Michael Jordan. Perhaps the two greatest players in basketball history. When he was younger, Lebron James met His Airness and like many before him, he was intimidated at the age of 16.
We’re reminded of an old regular season game on the Cavs side in 2018. Lebron James landed in Charlotte last night, for a clean win for his team.

Today he is one of the best sportsmen of all time, not to mention the fact that he helps to give love to his community and NBA fans. His school he built is the perfect symbol of that.

And when he says follow in his footsteps, he is also talking about buying an NBA franchise, which is probably the dream of any NBA player and maybe even fan. He won’t want to do what Michael Jordan did and want to run everything from the ground up. He wants to hire the best people to do the best job. We all know his eyes are on Cleveland…
