A LeBron James fan got a special gift from the Laker when he gave her a pair of shoes.
Following a Sunday victory over the Memphis Grizzlies, James gifted the player exclusive "Court Purple" Nike LeBron 16s he'd worn during the game to Grizzlies equipment manager Brian'e Miller, according to Sole Collector.
Complex reports that when asked what led him to give Miller the shoes off of his feet, James said, ”Every year I would come here, and she always has worn a very exclusive pair of my shoes. I've never said anything to her, but tonight I said something to her for the first time, and she was like, 'I've always been team LeBron ... always.'"
“It’s emotional because so many years I’ve been idolizing him,” Miller told the Commercial Appeal. “He has so many fans. That’s the thing. I’m not a fan just when LeBron comes. I’m a fan when he’s not looking, so it was just really cool to see him appreciate me.”
Miller reportedly had a short interaction with the Lakers star while hard at work collecting equipment. The two spoke briefly, and she'd continued with her duties when James' security guard asked her to come back over. That's when she received the shoes.
"I wasn’t expecting that, to come to work today and I’m going to get LeBron’s shoes," Miller said. "I’m just always trying to make the Lakers, or any team he’s on, comfortable because I know it’s hectic. It’s just trying to do my job, and he blessed me with a pair of shoes.”
LeBron did not show the Grizzlies themselves the same level of kindness. Dropping 20 points with eight rebounds and nine assists, number 23 led the Lakers to beat the Grizzlies 111-88.
