LeBron James is proof that a seemingly rocky situation can end up being a blessing in disguise. The Miami Heat super star took to his Instagram to speak on this, posting a note to his absentee father.
The quote -- which is an excerpt from his hour-long sit-down with NBA TV's Steve Smith -- is followed by the caption, "Because of you Pops! Thanks all along. Could have said why me with u not being there but look what I made of myself. Thanks to Huffington Post for the graphic. #StriveForGreatness"
Earlier in the year, he penned a lengthy letter to his mother, Gloria, thanking her for being his rock and his champion.
