Watch LeBron James surprise young fan with a gift, kiss [Video]

April 13, 2013|By Dan Loumena

LeBron James had been resting a strained right hamstring for a few games, but after returning this week he was in rare form following a victory over the Boston Celtics on Friday night.

James returned to play April 6 after missing three games to help the Miami Heat defeat the Philadelphia 76ers, 106-87, setting a franchise record with 60 victories. He scored 27 points in the win.

On Friday night, James had 20 points, nine assists and six rebounds in a 109-101 victory over the Celtics.

After giving a lively postgame interview, he turned to leave when a young fan was standing courtside, presumably waiting for a chance to meet James.

He did not disappoint, pulling off his headband, placing it on the girl's head and then giving her a gentle kiss.

The look on her face afterward is priceless.
