1. Tell us about you & your background.
I was born and raised in a town called Ponce in Puerto Rico. I have 2 sisters. Currently I course my senior year of high school. One of my future plans is work and study hard to be one of the best sports journalists. I love sports, especially basketball and that thanks to LeBron James. Im not practice it, I still and love it.
2. How long have you been a LeBron fan? And what was the first piece of gear that you ever bought?
At the beginning I didn’t follow basketball until I start following lebron. The first time i saw a Cav’s game was at 2008, years before i had heard about their game, how they play and the good they were; I was really curious and I start to watch the games. Worshiping the sport I owe it to Lebron. The fact of going to a full stadium and watch my favorite player achieving their goals, be passionate about what he does, is the biggest thing in the world. I love what he does and what he leaves on the court, trying to give his soul for a assist,point, dunk and be victorious in the game for his team. Clearly James has converted in my idol, in and out the court, I admire him and I respect him as a player and person. I like his commitment to the community and the love he have for his family. Wherever I go I like that people know I’m his biggest fan and I support him. The first thing that I buy of Lebron James was he’s Cav’s 23 jersey.
3. We’ve seen some of the pictures but how many pieces of LeBron & Heat gear do you have total? And what are your favorite pieces that you’ve collected so far.
Actually my collection isn’t so big, but my favorite pieces are two hats with the number 6 and Heat logo. In my little collection I have 4 jerseys, 5 t-shirt,magazines and a newspaper.
4. Who would you like to see LeBron & the Heat play in the 2012 NBA Finals?
I would like to see LeBron and the Heat in the final with the OKC Thunder. They are a young team that is playing basketball at it’s best expression. His depth of banking would bring us some competition and I’m sure LeBron James and his fans like the challenge and competition, of course as champions Miami 2012.
5. Do you have any shoutouts or messages that you want to send out?
I’m just want to say thanks to the page lebronjames.com that give us the opportunity to have a direct contact with fans like me around the world, and allowing me to express myself across this computer. Also thanks my friends and family for support and lean on my obsession with LBJ. And my idol LeBron James thanks for so much emotion, struggle, happiness, tears and dedication. His victories are my victories and defeats just learning. Definitely the NBA would not be tha same without King James.
