On the finish of Cavs-Pacers this night, TNT reporter Allie LaForce broke the news to LeBron James that Erin Popovich, Gregg Popovich’s spouse of 4 many years, handed away today on the age of sixty seven, and requested if he had any phrases. LeBron was clearly shocked, however collected himself for a touching response:
There’s a lot of dialog on social media questioning whether or not this was an applicable query to ask on this setting. It’s a robust spot provided that LeBron and Popovich are extensively recognized to have an in depth relationship. Whereas he delivered a really poignant response, it in all probability would have been higher to attend for the press convention to ask him about this when he would have had time to correctly digest the news.
UPDATE: Whereas LeBron’s response appeared to point that he was studying the news then and there, in line with Andrew Marchand and Richard Deitsch, LaForce gave LeBron a head’s up earlier than asking him the query.
