LeBron James posted a heartfelt letter Thursday night to his father whom he’s never met.
The NBA baller took to his Instagram to post a photo The Huffington Post created derived from James’ quotes from when he discussed his life with GQ during an interview.
“Like, ‘Wow, Dad, you know what, I don’t know you, I have no idea who you are, but because of you is part of the reason who I am today.’”
“The fuel that I use – you not being there – it’s part of the reason I grew up to become who I am. It’s part of the reason why I want to be hands-on with my endeavors.”
“And to be able to put my guys that’s with me now in position. Like Maverick Carter, my right-hand guy in business. Rich Paul, my agent. Randy Mims, my friend – he’s my manager, you know.”
“So me in a position allowing people around me to grow, that maybe wouldn’t have happened if I had two parents, two sisters, a dog, and a picket fence, you know?”
“Because of you Pops! Thanks all along. Could have said why me with u not being there but look what I made of myself,” James wrote in his Instagram caption.
