Video: LeBron James seeks out Special Olympics MVP, gives him his shoes

NBA superstar LeBron James is arguably the greatest basketball player in the world today. With that distinction and the moniker of “King James”, he is bound to have his critics.

Some fans are still pretty unhappy with the way he left Cleveland for Miami to just win a championship and return three years later. Despite all that, James has continued to show that not only is he one of the best basketball players ever, but he is a great person too.

During Tuesday night’s 89-77 win over the Boston Celtics, James found a fan on the sidelines that was ecstatic to be able to meet him. That fan was Aaron Miller, a Special Olympian who was recognized as MVP of Boston’s most recent event at halftime of the game.

When the teams returned to the court, James found Miller and introduced himself. Miller, despite wearing Celtics’ jersey, seemed to be overjoyed to meet James as the superstar seemed to give him a little message.

That message had a special meaning behind it, it seems. According to reports, James talked with Miller afterwards and actually gave him his shoes he had just played in.

LeBron had a moment with 'Hero Among Us' Aaron Miller, 16, of Newton, a player who's overcome brain damage at birth.

It seems like superstar athletes have been doing this kind of stuff all year long. Honestly, I stand with majority of the country and hope it continues.

Despite being a Celtics fan, I am pretty sure Miller just forever became a fan of LeBron James.
