LeBron James once again made a kid’s day by gifting him his game-worn sneakers after the LA Lakers’ ninth straight win. James also became the fourth player in NBA history to reach the career-milestone of 33,000 points. The shoes were the LeBron Nike 17s which retail at ₹16, 995. The LA Lakers defeated the New Orleans Pelicans 114-110 while James finished the game with 29 points, 5 rebounds and 11 assists.

At first, James tried to give the kid his sleeve and wristband. However, he ended up giving him his shoes as the crowd interjected. In an interview, later on, James was asked about his generous gesture towards the kid. James admitted that he did not think it was a big deal. He would always prefer giving the shoes to a kid as they would cherish them. If he handed them over to an adult, they would only sell them online in an auction. James is currently averaging at 25.8 points, 7.3 rebounds and career-high 11 assists.
