LeBron James to pick up latest award Saturday

Published Add your comment

Picking up awards has become almost second nature for LeBron James.

The Miami Heat superstar has two MBa Finals MVPs, four league MVPs, two All-Star game MVP's, Sports Illustrated Man of the Year and too many more to mention.

And this Saturday he will have to make some more space in his trophy cabinet as he receives the 'Don Shula Sports Legend Award' in Miami.

The award will be bestowed on James in relation to both his dedication on the court and his philanthropic work off it with the LeBron James Family Foundation.

Apparently this will be the first time LeBron will pick up an award in person in Miami as he attends the 2014 Reid & Fiorentino Call of the Game Dinner this weekend.

The dinner is named after legendary Miami Heat broadcasters Eric Reid and Tony Fiorentino and aims to benefit local charities.

Fellow Heat teammate James Jones will also be picking up an award on the night, the 'Ted Arison Community Service Award', for his work with the South Florida community.

This won't be the last award handed out to the NBA star we are sure, with this season's NBA MVP firmly in his sights, but it is good to see players recognized for their off court work.
