Warren Buffett Praises LeBron James In ‘TIME 100’ Piece: ‘You’re Just Seeing The Start’
While making the TIME 100: Most Influential People of 2019 list, LeBron James received many kudos from self-made billionaire entrepreneur and investor Warren Buffett.
In addition to speaking on how he and LBJ first met over a decade ago, Buffett says he’s “been impressed with his leadership skills, his sharp mind and his ability to stay grounded. People in LeBron’s position get tugged in different directions and have a lot of chances to make bad decisions. He’s kept his head, and that’s not easy.”
Additionally, on the LA Laker he adds, “LeBron has justified the adulation of millions and millions of young people, thanks to his ability to live up to enormous expectations on the basketball court, his business successes in Hollywood and media, and his new I Promise School for disadvantaged kids in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. That adulation will make a positive difference in their lives. And you know what else is exciting? As great as he has been so far—on and off the court—you’re just seeing the start of LeBron.”
