The Miami Heat’s stop in Phoenix for Tuesday night’s game is also a chance for LeBron James to check in on family.
James considers injured Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe to be family.
Their close relationship was apparent this off-season when he tweeted a photo of them out together and wrote, “Phx got them something special in him.”
James made Bledsoe the only non-Heat player in a Samsung commercial, with that same photo appearing to show Bledsoe calling James.
“I take care of family,” James said of insisting that Bledsoe be in the commercial.
