LeBron James Explains The Importance Of Sacrifice


It may be the NBA offseason, but LeBron James has had the spotlight on him nonstop recently.

Recently, he gave a small speech to his son's AAU team about sacrifice and playing your role, and it went viral. Here is the video:

"...Some of the best players to ever play the game came off the bench. That don't mean you ain't good. They're just playing a role. If you don't want a role, play tennis or play golf. Cuz then you can do whatever the fuck you wanna do."

This isn't something we've really ever heard from LeBron James. Throughout his career, while he's played with plenty of other stars, role players have always stepped up for him (and other superstars) during his 15-year career. And in that moment, James reminded us just how important those guys are.
