To say that LeBron James has had an amazing 2016 may be an understatement. The Akron, Ohio native delivered the state's first professional sports championship in 52 years by defeating the Golden State Warriors in seven games after trailing 3-1, which has effectively made him teflon in any basketball debate from now until the end of time. He was named Sports Illustrated's Sportsperson of the year last month. And to top it all off, he helped executive produce his own game show that will air next week. With all those great things going on in his life, he decided to spread the joy to a certain someone who actually won the show he created!
LeBron James and his business partner Maverick Carter's SpringHill Entertainment and Andrew Glassman's Glassman Media, produced a show called The Wall, a game that is almost identical to the Price Is Right game, Plinko. The show, which was executive produced in part by the three-time NBA Champion, features teams of two people who answer trivia questions, then drop a ball down a wall for every correct answer. The team works together in order to build the cash prize, which can lead to cash up to $3 million on a single drop!
While the show will air on NBC on January 2, LeBron decided to deliver some holiday cheer to a family who won a huge chunk of change. The couple, John and Angel, won $1.3 million and LeBron took it upon himself to deliver the winnings in cold hard cash. The 12-time All Star, with the cameras rolling, rolled up to the couple's house with two duffle bags full of money, and what proceeded to occur is absolutely awesome. When Angel opens the door and sees that it is in fact, LeBron James in their house, she predictably goes nuts. The couple's son looks completely starstuck, while John daps LeBron up like an old friend.
When LeBron opens up the duffle bags full of money, the faces of the family are absolutely priceless. At the end of the video, an amored car ends up taking the money out of the house and into a much more secure location, because keeping a million dollars in cash inside a house probably isn't a smart idea.
