Thanksgiving always offers people a chance to pause and reflect, and Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James is no different.
James recently tweeted a link to his 48-3 million Twitter followers of a YouTube video from a channel named JamesGangMedia of his uncle Curt reading passages from the Bible and discussing how one can get everlasting life.

Aside from being one of the best players the NBA has ever seen, James has also not been shy about sharing his faith in God. Just last year he tweeted that he was grateful for God and his mother Gloria for giving him life and promised to continue to make them both proud.
God and Gloria THANK YOU SO MUCH for giving me life! I promise I’ll continue to make the both of you proud of me! ❤️❤️🙏🏾 #RandomThoughtThatCrossedMyMental #BeyondBlessed

It seems as if James gets his spirituality from his mother, who has said in a video made by his I Promise School that it was “a lot of faith from God” that helped him raise James after giving birth to him as a teeanger.
“Plants grow when they’re watered. That’s what people do when they feel loved.” ❤️ This is how you inspire and empower students. @MichelleObama @KingJames #IPROMISE #MondayMotivation pic.twitter.com/5S15eUcweG

James has a lot to thank God for this year, after the 35-year old helped the Lakers win their first championship in a decade after beating the Miami Heat in six games in the 2020 NBA Finals, winning his fourth title and fourth Finals MVP in the process.
The four-time MVP is also in a good position to win another title after a strong offseason by general manager Rob Pelinka and the front office were able to acquire the likes of point guard Dennis Schroder, Wesley Matthews, Montrezl Harrell, and Marc Gasol, while re-signing Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Markieff Morris. Only the impending contract extension of fellow All Star Anthony Davis remains and the Purple and Gold are positioned to be favourites heading into the 2020-2021 season next month.
