talented artist who does love me

bikes oh man they like what are you

doing I'm like what you think I'm doing

I'm gonna breath of fresh air you know I

got one life with this man so yeah

that's what I'm doing

I don't have like cool initials where

girls like my initials or I don't have

those trillion Jesus patch so we should

just call it here yeah should we just

cut it how the thing is I don't think

it's fair you guys have outdone

yourselves why don't you look at it

first and then we'll let the viewers

decide okay well I'm just put this the

wonky out here like this is like you

know if you a parent that's like having

your first child if you an artist is

like having your first debut album it's

like painting on your first canvas so

I'm just letting you know how deep it is

it runs deep I'm just you know this is

like let me know what y'all ready for

the viewers to get to that point I keep

it right here imma keep it tough this is

like the holy grail for me

Wow Nike Air Zoom generation my first

baby Burke she burped I just burped my

baby on the head side of here I just

want y'all to see that with that say

with it it says 11 5 2003 first time I

stepped on a floor in front of my home

fans ever in the NBA I lost that game

not too happy about that but I won that

game if you know what I mean honey what

did you have the date customized into

him I won't open the box they surprised

me with it it was like my first home

game so they had already had to date in

there you know after the game I gave

them to our equipment guy and I was like

yo we casing these and uh I'm gonna keep

it forever I took these out of the case

for this I just want you guys to know

look look look at those it like oh my

god why yeah they warn't played hard

that night shoulda did that yeah I sweat

it out sweat it out sweat it this is

this is the holy grail for me

that's signature dunks that you have

where you basically put your chin at the

rim you're the only person that can

really do that that way but you've been

doing it from such a young age was young

LeBron thinking then this is my junk man

moment young LeBron was not thinking

that you know I remember kind of like

one of the first time I actually did

that dunk that's not like my dump man

logo we were playing on national

television my senior year and I got a

breakaway dunk I was just like see if

you can jump as high as you can spray it

out as long as you can as far as you can

and just flush it yeah but that's the

cool thing is because it just it came

from the flow and playing the game

organic organic organic type of guy man

catch me at Whole Foods whenever you

know saying catch me a Whole Foods if

you looking for me Whole Foods you like

let me see that right there that's that

cranberry potato salad let me see that

I'm telling you that's that tone of fish

with the cranberries on it let me see

that let me dump that in there just work

out that way baby let's see the

evolution we got the first I'm home game

baby I'm gonna sit you to it you ain't

you show the fret you said a favorite

now and then we get to this 413 we get

to the 13th question for you every year

drops kids go crazy you know celebrities

wearing other players on other teams

wear yeah but they're wearing you

sneakers aren't you everything works his

way back so when I was a kid and Isis

see guys where MJ shoes when they played

against MJ I was like oh ma got a little

mental edge over those guys so for me

now being a net that MJ class I'm like

if I see a guy wearing my shoes if he's

not like a good good real like brother

of mine cuz I got some guys that team

LeBron and that's all that's what we do

but if you just said god it was like you

actually go like to footlocker somewhere

or some

you just go get a pair of Brasi you want

to wear him on a Tuesday night versus me

will bust your ass straight up all right

guys that's it

grails now grayling is not a competitive

sport but let us know who had the best

Grail in the comment section would you

was it me was it ma G was it King James

it's up to you to decide thanks for
