Lebron James Thanks Father For Being Absent In His Life
Throughout his career, LeBron James has made it well known the importance of his mother, Gloria, in his upbringing. His father, however, is a different story. Gloria was just 16 when she gave birth to LeBron, and his father, Anthony McClelland, out of the picture, she raised him as a single mother. The four-time NBA MVP has not forgotten, and posted a powerful open letter to his father on Instagram on Wednesday:
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
Anthony McClelland HAS to be somewhere, probably lightin’ up some of that “Lamar Odom”, kicking himself for not being there for his son and reaping the benefits that Gloria James enjoys.
