LeBron James has given the world insight to what drives him to greatness. On his Instagram feed, the global icon posted a sort of “thank you letter” to his absent father.
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
The quote comes from a lengthy feature on James done by GQ, where he discusses the transition from a project kid in Akron, Ohio to an overnight millionaire. James also talks about his concept of family, and gives a peek into his beliefs on African American society. It’s a fascinating read on the world’s most recognizable athlete.
