Lebron James is GQ‘s cover star this month, flooding the publication with snaps and a photos designed to shine the light on the athlete’s world view, legacy, athleticism and feelings towards the sport that has made him one of the greatest in the game…basketball.
When asked about his activism, Lebron stated,
“I think Ali represented something bigger than Ali. He wanted to make a change for a future without him included. That’s what Ali brought to the table. I don’t know what it’s like to live in every state in this country, but I know freedom. I know the opportunity that our country has given people, and to see the guy in charge now not understanding that is baffling to not only myself but to my friends and to the people that I’ve helped grow this country. But Muhammad Ali’s correlation to the war… I don’t think me and Donald Trump could ever get to that point.”
Lebron spends his off-season keeping a busy schedule, and laying the groundwork for future endeavors, which is helping to build his brand, Lebron Inc. He told GQ Magazine,
“It’s my responsibility. I believe that I was put here for a higher cause. We have people that have been in the higher positions that chose to do it and chose not to do it.”
Of course with his levels of success, many would wonder how he handles his ego, and he adds,
“I have people around me, for the most part, that have been around me for a long time. So when you’ve been around people for a long time, there’s no sugarcoating, there’s no trying to put you higher than what you should be, there’s no yes-men or -women, there’s no gas. It’s just straight-up, raw, uncut, unfiltered knowledge, truth, passion.”
LeBron James has been basketball’s best player for about 14 years. He not only scores on the court but manages to land major points off the court as well when it comes down to business.
