There has probably never been a more unselfish NBA superstar than LeBron James. The King proved it again by giving his teammates Apple watches during a private meeting before Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
When James concluded his address, he shifted the tone of the meeting to a looser, more casual setting. He arranged for food, music was blasting and he even brought in a barber for players to get haircuts. The team relaxed and talked about family, the news and just life in general. This was his way of easing any pre-Finals tension they might have had. But before they went their separate ways that night of the meeting, James had another surprise. He gave them all brand new Apple watches.
Teammate J.R. Smith couldn’t have been happier, as he told Cleveland.com:
I don’t know how he does it, but every day it’s something different, Smith said with a laugh. Watches, sneakers, Beats [headphones], hoodies, book-bags. Man, I can’t wait to come back next year. I want to see what we’re getting next year.
The kicker in all this? LeBron is a spokesman for Samsung.
