During the Atlanta Hawks’ annual media day, guard Dejounte Murray expressed his gratitude for the Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James’ guidance on and off the floor:
He’s a great dude. A great man, a great father, a great leader, a great basketball player. Somebody that took me under his wing around 17 years old. So, you know, I’m always preaching I’m thankful and grateful because I mean that. I’m just thankful to have somebody like that in my corner, guiding me off the floor and also on the floor. So, that’s a great dude and I appreciate it.
