Even if you’re not a basketball fan, Game 6 of the NBA finals was a seriously gripping game. And even if Game 6 wasn’t your cup of tea, we can guarantee you can find something to love in Miami Heat star and all-star hottie LeBron James.
Rising to stardom straight out of high school, LeBron’s story was widely publicized for a minute, and it’s possible your boyfriend hates him for more sportsman reasons as a result. But we, honestly, just fell in love. We think things have cooled down enough to admit that he is constantly doing slam-dunks in our hearts.
What has LeBron been up to since, besides, obviously, basketball? Here are our six favorite reasons to love LeBron James.
6. He’s Funny!
Here’s the thing about being cocky: it often comes with being charming and witty. Have you seen LeBron on Saturday Night Live? He’s hilarious, and a fantastic straight man, too.
Take this video of Jason Sudeikis messing up a fictional NBA PSA: “I played high school ball! Point guard!”
LeBron, even with all the stress of being an adolescent sports star, stuck with his gorgeous high school sweetheart, Savannah Brinson, the whole way! The pair already have two children together, and they’re getting hitched this September.
LeBron posted this photo to his Instagram on his mom’s birthday with the caption: “Happy B-day to my inspiration, pride and joy. A women that gave me everything as a kid w/o having everything. I have no idea how u did it being a single parent. I love you forever and beyond Momma!!”
1. He Looks Great With or Without a Headband!
We’re going to take a controversial stance on Headbandgate 2013: LeBron looks fine with or without a headband, no matter what effect it had on Game 6. But we’re glad the accessory got a Twitter account out of the deal.
Shout out to Jose the Janitor for scoopin me and bringin me back to Lebron's locker. Lmao now I know how Nemo felt
