LeBron James and his magic on a young fan

LeBron James showed up at a summer league game and took the crowd by surprise. His presence at courtside was enough to give his fans aspirations of sneaking a selfie with him. So a young fan used this opportunity to ‘catch’ LeBron in a selfie as he was heading towards the tunnel. 

The response from the youngster was priceless. He could not believe Bron made a gesture to make his quick selfie look better. It turned out that just a micro-second of attention from the 4x Champion was enough for a lifetime memory. Who knows if that act alone could motivate the kid to become a pro baller?
