LeBron James shows leadership defending reporter

Late Wednesday night, when the Cleveland Cavaliers star broke his annual social media blackout during the playoffs to defend TNT sideline reporter Allie LaForce. In case you missed the furor, social media was incensed that LaForce had asked James about the death of San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich’s wife, Erin, following the Cavaliers’ victory in Game 2, criticizing LaForce for ambushing James and questioning the appropriateness of the question. This wasn’t James’ fight. He easily could have ignored the debate, or waited until Cleveland’s next media availability to weigh in. But he recognized that LaForce’s reputation and ethics were being challenged, and didn’t think it was fair.
“I was made aware through some friends, through texts, that a question was asked to me postgame and a lot of people feel that I was blindsided. That is absolutely false. Allie LaForce told me that she was going to ask me the question and if it was OK,” James said in a video posted on UNIN…

The letter in full


‘My darling Bar,
This should be a very easy letter to write. Words should come easily to me and it should be simple for me to tell you how absolute happy I was to open the paper and see the announcement of our engagement, but can’t possibly say all in a letter I should like to.
I love you, precious, with all my heart and to know that you love me means my life. How often I have thought about the immeasurable joy that will be ours someday. How lucky our children will be to have a mother like you.




As the days go by the time of our departure grows nearer. For a long time I had anxiously looked forward to the day wh…
