On Tuesday the Cleveland Cavaliers played against the Pheonix Suns at the Talking Stick Resort Arena. During the game, LeBron noticed one of his fans, a young boy courtside holding up a sign. It read, “King James, you are more than an athlete.” As a result, the 33-year-old NBA superstar gifted the young boy with his arm sleeve.’

The sign was in support of LeBron’s response to FOX News host Laura Ingraham who went on a harangue attacking Bron for his adverse comments about President Donald Trump. In her rant, Ingraham told the basketball player to “shut up and dribble” instead of giving political commentary.
The Cavs went on to beat the Suns 129-107.
