LeBron James: Man I’ve loved these 2 forever man and they don’t even know it! From wanting to be The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air growing up in Akron Ohio to crying laughing that same night at Half Baked to wishing I could help saved the world like Independence Day to being on a stage captivating people minds and tapping into their funny bones like The Chapelle Show. I’ve always wanted in some way shape or form make y’all proud of what I could bring to the table. So with that said THANKS for just being DOPE/TRUE and Inspiring a kid from Akron to do the same🙏🏾!! #SuperHeroes #KingTalk👑
