24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
The 2016 Sports Illustrated Gala took place in Brooklyn, NY last night. The headliner of the show was LeBron James, who was presented his Sportsperson of the Year award by Jay Z. Before James came up, Jay Z reminded the world of how much LBJ and his management, which Phil Jackson referred to as a “posse” have accomplished over the last thirteen years in the business world.
LeBron went onto deliver a very authentically-powerful speech, in which he thanked sports legends and activists Muhammad Ali, Jim Brown, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Bill Russell. Check it out below.
