LeBron the Consoler

Also while in Cleveland, I came across this photograph by Tracy Boulian in the Cleveland Plain Dealer. It shows LeBron James and a student from his high school alma mater after a playoff loss. I was transfixed by this photo for a while. First, there's the fact of LeBron -- the world's greatest player -- being there and doing this. Then there's the fact of the kid, who's so distraught that he can't even pull himself together and be tough for LeBron James. I feel like it's something you could see hanging in a religious wing of the Met, with a title like Consolation of the Point Guard.
