In discussing the possible return of some of his injured teammates, basketball star LeBron James stated that Jesus is the only person you can truly rely on.
On December 4, LeBron’s team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, lost to the New Orleans Pelicans. LeBron tried to rally the Cavaliers from behind, but even though he scored a season-high 37 points in the game, the Cavaliers lost to the Pelicans 114-108 in overtime.
Charisma News reports that the Cavaliers’ difficult loss has some fans hoping that the return of injured players Kyrie Irving and Imam Shumpert will return the team to success, but James provided some broader perspective.
"It's only one guy in the world, ever, where everything will be all right when He comes back, and that's Jesus Christ. Other than that, you can't bank on nobody being OK," James said.
Cleveland.com says that LeBron is known for his wit, so perhaps this comment was one of his quips, but, as Charisma News reports, James can live out his faith by continuing to work hard until the Lord returns.
