LeBron Posts Heartfelt Message To Father On Instagram

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — The journey LeBron James has made from Akron, Ohio, to NBA stardom, has by now been well-chronicled. Part of that story is that while he was raised by his mother, LeBron never knew his father. And in his new cover story in GQ magazine, LeBron addresses the father he never knew, thanking him for giving him the drive and determination to become the player he’s become today. LeBron posted on Instagram part of what he said in GQ. As LeBron wrote in the Instagram caption, “Because of you Pops! Thanks all along. Could have said why me with u not being there but look what I made of myself. Thanks to Huffington Post for the graphic. #StriveForGreatness”

    Yo bron, the blessing s , bestowed upon u are due to ur hard work n skills.,now that u, made it..u takin care of ur moms..member a father is the man who raises the children., not the one who makes the child, any man can make a child but a real man raises his seed..

    what about all those kids without a father hanging in the streets at night? they all have to do backflips because they have a chance to become as rich as Lebron as long as they use the fuel? lol ok, more like jail or wellfare, another step from the establishment in bringing down the normal Family

      He’s not saying it’s a situation that everyone automatically benefits from. He’s saying it was one of the reasons it drove him to succeed. As someone else who grew up without a dad, I can see where he’s coming from.

    HARD work pays off I just wish many people would have the determination that LeBron has HE’s a posterizer much of my determination comes from him one of his great quotes was he likes criticism it makes him stronger you must use all god given gifts and take them to the sky level with participation.
