LeBron James what it takes to make it big in the NBA. He has worked hard to get where he is and he has worked harder to stay at the top for all these years.
For any athlete of LeBron’s stature to do what he does and achieve what he has, a solid foundation needs to be in place; one that is inculcated in the individual in his childhood by his coaches, parents and elders.
LeBron knows how a little motivation and guidance at a young age can help a player go a long way. It builds character and gives the child hope that things could actually work out.
Now, with LeBron’s son Bryce also playing basketball in school, LeBron is making sure that his son gets all the motivation and guidance that he deserves.

Maybe Bryce won’t make it that big in the NBA, or maybe he would overtake LeBron too; but right now what matters the most to him is that his dad is acting as a guiding force in what could be the most memorable journey of his life.
A video surfaced on social media last night about how LeBron was guiding Bryce after the end of a game, telling him how it is not all about the baskets, but also about important players away from it as well.
Bryce was carefully listening to his dad, soaking all the information in and maybe realising that he could look at the sport differently from here on.
Bryce, who was a little down post the game was told by LeBron that he had made the 3 mot important plays of the game and that he should be proud about it.
“If you missing shots or making shots, don’t worry about it kid! You played a hell of a game.” LeBron said.

The video has gone viral on social media as it is so heartening to see LeBron take so much interest in his kid’s basketball and come up with a brilliant pep talk to lift him when he is down and in need.
Folks underestimate how much of this game is about having confidence in yourself. One of the best things that can happen for a player is having a coach who believes in you and is willing to build you up after you fall. Great parenting and coaching on display here.
