Lakers star LeBron James reacts to Zaila Avant-garde’s historic Spelling Bee victory

Spelling Bee, Zaila Avant-garde, Lakers, LeBron James

Sure, the NBA Finals are going on as we speak, but Los Angeles Laker star LeBron James is being well-rounded as usual. On Thursday was the Scripps National Spelling Bee, and it made headlines as Zaila Avant-garde became the first African American champion in the history of the Spelling Bee and it brought a ton of reactions, including one from LeBron.

High praise from LeBron James, who himself has won a number of NBA titles and has a long list of accolades throughout his career. The 14-year-old also becomes the first champion from Louisiana. She also drew some praise from Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry. Coincidentally, she was in a Steph commercial before as well.

Oh yeah, and she is a basketball player of her own and has some sweet highlight reels on her social media pages.

So the basketball player now turned Spelling Bee champion has garnered interest from the top stars in the NBA as she hones her craft and excels in the academic world, and she has her name on some Guinness World Records for her skills.

Congratulations on Zaila Avant-garde for taking home the Spelling Bee crown and many more reactions should pour in after her historic victory on Thursday.
