LeBron James had yet another solid performance for the Los Angeles Lakers in a 111-88 road win over the Memphis Grizzlies. But he made the night especially memorable for a woman who works for the Grizzlies.
After the game, LeBron apparently gave his game-worn shoes to the woman, which naturally surprised many fans and media members.
In the post-game interviews, LeBron was asked why he gave the shoes to the woman.
LeBron revealed that he remembered the woman as having worn a pair of his exclusive shoes every time he played the Grizzlies.

“…Every year I’ve come here she’s always worn a very exclusive pair of my shoes. And I’ve always noticed it, I’ve never said anything to her. And tonight I said something to her for the first time and she was like ‘Yeah, I’ve always been Team LeBron.'”
As good a night as that Grizzlies employee must have had, LeBron had a good one too.
He finished the night with 20 points, eight rebounds, and nine assists in over 31 minutes played.
