Lebron Telling A Teammate to Keep Khloe Kardashian Away Shows What a Leader He Is.

The HR Capitalist

I was like most of America when Lebron James left Cleveland to join the Miami Heat. The cynic in me remained reserved when he left Miami to return to his home town two years ago. I'll admit it.

But then Lebron just kind of shut up and dug in. He lost in the Finals to the Golden State Warriors in 2015.
