NBA star LeBron James appeared at the Harlem Fashion Row gala. His lovely daughter Zhuri was there to accompany him.
King James took the stage to accept the Harlem Fashion Row 360 Award, and used the opportunity to talk about Zhuri. The girl is his true inspiration, and helped him become a better person.
“I had two boys first, my oldest son, LeBron Jr., and my younger son, Bryce Maximus, and people always told me, if you ever have a girl she’ll change you. Three years ago, this bright spot right here happened to our family. And not only did she change me, she’s made me a better person. A more dedicated person, a stronger person. I guess a more sensitive person that realized that I have so much more of a responsibility to women in general. So, thank you, Zhuri,” LeBron said of his daughter.
The king of basketball also talked about the African-American women who brought a different light in his life. His mother Gloria is undoubtedly the most powerful woman he has ever known.
“I believe that African American women are some of the strongest people on earth. I grew up around some amazingly strong women and am inspired by the strength I see around me, including my mom, wife, and daughter. As someone who has a platform, because of what I do, I thought it was important to lend that platform to a group of people that I believe are under-recognized. Being the son, husband and father of strong African American women, I felt like this was something I wanted to do for them and for all the strong women out there who are succeeding despite what might be stacked against them,” LeBron added.
King James is a successful person, and there are a few great things that keep pushing him towards a greater success.
