Whether you're a fan of LeBron James or not, this story makes him sound like a genuinely good guy.
Deadspin found a note from a Wolves fan who wanted to express how friendly James has been to his mother whenever he plays the Timberwolves at Target Center.
Hey, I don't know if this is the right place for this or if I even should post this, but I thought I'd say, from a Wolves fan, Lebron is a cool guy. We typically get decent seats to all home games near the opposing team's bench, and sometimes you get to be right next to some pretty talkative NBA players. The first year Lebron came to the Target Center in a Miami uniform, my mom was at the game with us and she was wearing new earrings. Lebron noticed them, said they were nice and asked how much they cost. My mom jokingly just said, "A lot." He gave her a look and said, "You think I can't afford them?" Every year since then, when Miami comes to town, he'll at some point look over to our seats and grab his earlobes (because of the earrings) and smile. This year was no different, and in addition to that he talked with us a bit, wished us a merry christmas, and then gave her his sweatband. That's why he's not wearing it in the Dwayne Wade sweeping interview. All in all, in spite of his reputation leaving Cleveland and people thinking he's a bad guy and stuff, I think he's a cool guy.
The story becomes more believable with this video of a woman at the Wolves-Heat game on Saturday putting on a gift from a LeBron... his sweat-drenched headband. LeBron torched the Wolves with 21 points, 14 rebounds and eight assists.
