Default A Feel Good Moment Involving LeBron James

One of the few times everyone agrees on something he (and the Heat) have done:

saw this last night, cool how he went the extra mile for that fan. also cool how he signed sooo much stuff for the kid. My mom is a cancer pediatric nurse and she was telling me one of her patients did the travis pastrana my wish last year and she helped coordinate it with the family. Seems like a nice experiance for the unfortunate children who undergo alot of pain and suffering.

being around a hospital surrounding, it will break your heart at times when you see young kids, babies, walking in with cancer and other diseases knowing they have around a 1 in 10 chance of living. anytime people do things like this to help kids, i have so much more respect for them. good for lebron, i wish that kid and his family the best.

You know, "My Wish" is part of an ESPN series where athletes help out kids who are in the 'Make a Wish' Foundation.....it is 100% Charity.

Also, the kids PICK the athletes, not the other way around.

Maybe you should look into it more, there are various stories on various athletes from baseball, football, basketball, hockey, even Nascar.

ONE person said something afterwards. Wow, you're amazing. Do you actually consider the fact that if you didn't say things like that to deliberately stir things/people, that they might not say anything at all? It's people like you that make people dislike Lebron etc.
Everyone can have their opinion on a player, yet you're always there 'protecting' him and to be honest, it's really getting tiresome.

haha okay whatever you say boss

oh by the way you did a good job contributing to the thread. if you don't like my joke then maybe you should heed your own advice and "not say anything at all"...

oh and those discrediting this weren't joking maybe the troll police should go after them...

I always love the My Wish series...pretty awesome stories, and I'm glad ESPN shares them every year.

When it comes to Make A Wish, no one tops John Cena. The guy has done over 300 wish requests...that's incredible. Hulk Hogan, Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Gordon, MJ, and Kobe have all done over a hundred. Pretty special.

This is the one reason I didn't go to school to become a doctor, but instead went into finance. I wanted too, basically for the money, but realized I didn't want to see people that were sick every day for the rest of my life. We all encounter it enough in our own daily lives.
