LeBron James Open Letter To Dead Beat Dad !! “Thanks For The Non-Support”
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. He had some powerful words for his father in a forthcoming GQ cover story, which he posted on his Instagram account.
“Because of you Pops!” James wrote along with the photo. “Thanks all along. Could have said why me with u not being there but look what I made of myself.”
It’s a moving, affecting message that shows the hurt that can be caused when a parent abandons their child. It’s part of what drives LeBron to be the devoted person is his till today.
