Earlier this year, a Twitter campaign using the hashtag #LeBronMeetEbony went viral, as social media users from around the world tried to set up a meeting between Heat star LeBron James and Ebony Nettles-Bey, a high school basketball player from Wisconsin battling Stage 4 cancer. Saturday, before the Heat’s game against the Bucks in Milwaukee, that meeting happened, as Nettles-Bey met James, led the Heat onto the floor, and warmed up with the team on the court.
LeBron James talks about meeting 16-year-old cancer patient Ebony Nettles-Bey.
