Earlier today, we reported on Kyrie Irving saying that he didn’t like the movie "Get Out," causing Twitter to lose their mind with the white girl and yacht party references.
LeBron James is a constant participant in the venture, and provided this hilarious tidbit on the time his mom helped him cheat while in the fourth grade.
The King and his mom are very close, and he told a story of how despite missing 82 of 181 days of school one year at Harris Elementary in Akron, Ohio, he was able to bring his grade up enough to pass with a healthy assist.
“Me and my mom went to school one day in the spring time, and my teacher was like, ‘Your son applies himself so much when he’s here, but he’s never here,'” James recalled. “And my mom said, ‘What can we do so my son doesn’t fail? I don’t want my son to ever feel like he’s a failure.’
“My teacher at the time, and I’m sorry I don’t remember your name, she gave us a stack – and I wish the listeners could see the stack of papers – she said, ‘If your son can finish this stack of extra credit, we’ll pass him.’
“This how G my momma is. Me and my momma went home, split the extra credit papers. She did half, I did half. We turned that shit in, and they passed me. That’s why my momma a G to this day.”
