One of the most exciting NBA Finals in recents years has the underdog Cleveland Cavaliers against the Golden State warriors. The rise of the Cavaliers thanks to the return of James makes the series even better to watch.
In a report by Northeast Ohio Media Group on Cleveland.com, it was reported James helped hype and inspire his teammates before the series began in a rented lounge at the Four Seasons in downtown San Francisco.
Here, the four-time MVP explained to his teammates what kind of adversity they would face to win a championship, while also helped build camaraderie by giving all of his teammates an Apple Watch before they departed:
But before they went their separate ways that night of the meeting, James had another surprise. He gave them all brand new Apple watches.
It was another way of displaying his appreciation for his guys.
What makes this story interesting is Lebron James is one of the most high-profile endorsers for Samsung, seen often in ads and more. If you’re one of the best basketball players on the planet, you probably give the best smartwatches right (and gifts, like Beats headphones)?
I wonder how the meeting might have ended if he said “Wait, there’s one more thing…I have Galaxy Gear 2 smartwatches for you all.”
