    I live in L.A. so there’s a lot of excitement about the Lakers’ win but not being a big sports fan, my enthusiasm for LeBron is a lot more in line with Kiese Laymon’s (whose memoir, Heavy, is great BTW). LeBron is a true hero for what he does off the court, and it’s nice to learn (again sports idiot) that it’s reflected in how he plays on the court. Shout out also to Naomi Osaka who is a LeBron in training 🙂
