LeBron Thanks

 

LeBron James is creating a stir online after his latest Instagram post.

Late Wednesday night, the Akron-born basketball sensation posted an open letter essentially thanking his father for being absent from his life.

Read it in full:

“Like, Wow, Dad, you know what, I don’t know you, I have no idea who you are, but because of you is part of the reason who I am today. The fuel that I use – you not being there – it’s part of the reason I grew up to become who I am. It’s part of the reason why I want to be hands-on with my endeavors… So me in a position allowing people around me to grow, that maybe wouldn’t have happened if I had two parents, two sisters, a dog, and a picket fence, you know?”
