LeBron James has been an inspiration for the younger generation. Despite being 37 and all set to enter his 20th year in the NBA, James has never shied away from working hard in the gym and his training sessions. The veteran is still fit as a fiddle and has some fuel left in his old tank.
James has achieved almost all the things which are there in the record books but his hunger to keep going never subsides despite achieving so much in his illustrious career.
Speaking on Uninterrupted the Shop, James said, “I think from that perspective, as far as our kids and things of that nature, I just hope that they– I hope that we’ve instilled enough vision in them that they look and see the passion that we put into what we do on a day-to-day basis. And they can relate from that.”
James revealed that he was inspired by the way his mom, dad, and uncles worked and it taught him an early life lesson. In the same way, he is hopeful that his three kids and the younger generation get inspired by the way he works hard on the court.
“Because everything that I learned from growing up also, I mean, obviously, I had to– I didn’t have shit, so, like, I needed to go get it. But I also saw the determination that my mom had. And I also saw, you know, my uncles and what they instilled as well. So like, you just hope that you’re doing it the right way and you’re grinding, ’cause we’re still grinding.”
James is also known for his philanthropic work and he continuously does a lot of charity. The veteran is hopeful that he has set the right example for his kids to follow in his footsteps.
“The right way that when your kids are looking and you don’t know when they looking, they like, Oh, shit, Pops out there grinding, Mom’s out there grinding, you know? You just hope that you’ve done enough, you’ve done enough.”
