Video: LeBron James gives his arm sleeve to young fan from courtside
While the Cleveland Cavaliers were in the middle of their demolition job of the hapless Phoenix Suns Wednesday night, Cavs superstar LeBron James made a heartwarming gesture that even Suns fans could definitely appreciate.
During the fourth quarter of the game that was virtually over way before the period even started, James spotted a young fan watching the game from the courtside with a sign that contains a message of support for the four-time MVP’s cause. James was not about to let the fan leave the game unappreciated, so he asked a court security personnel to hand the young fan the arm sleeve he wore during the contest. And just to make it way more memorable for the kid, LeBron James gave him what he likely would not to the Cavs’ defense: a thumbs up.

As among the leading figures of the “We will not shut up and dribble” movement, James has clearly made his message clear because even young fans like that lucky kid seemed to have gotten a good grasp of what The King was trying to convey. Speaking of which, James surely has also sent a powerful message to the rest of the league by notching yet another triple-double.
James dropped 28 points on the Suns and added 13 rebounds and 11 assists for his 14th trip-dub of the season to lead the Cavs to a convincing 129-107 win over Phoenix.
James and the Cavs will now take a full day of rest before facing the surging Portland Trail Blazers on the road this Thursday.
