Dear Lebron James,
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! My husband’s sanity depended on you. 😀
See, aside from us (his family), his other passions were his bullmastiffs, bird photography, and being your fan.
Early this year, he lost his favourite bitch–the “Mother of Champions”—Khaleesi.
The progeny of Khal Drogo and the late Khaleesi
It was very heartbreaking for him. He did everything he could to save Khaleesi, but his best was not enough.
To survive that very tragic episode in his life, he channelled his energy into bird photography. Even though he was a newbie, his bird photos brought good vibes to the Newsfeed of his Facebook friends.

But a few weeks ago, a thief broke into his office and stole his bird photography paraphernalia: camera body and expensive lenses, and stuffed them all into his new backpack where his Ray-ban sunnies were also stuffed.
And oh by the way, check out his office:
He discovered the theft a few hours before Game 1 of the NBA Finals. He still watched, and his heartache doubled who you lost. And lost, and lost.
I could just imagine how he was feeling when he posted this on Facebook two Saturdays ago:
NOT MY YEAR: The year 2016 has not been very good to me. Early this year, I lost my dear bullmastiff Khaleesi, leaving me with just her only love Khal Drogo. As an indirect result of my losing one of my dogs, my office got burglarized last week and I lost my birding camera and lens. I was just starting off with bird photography and it has somehow taken the place of Khaleesi, and now it has come to a halt. To top it all off, Lebron James is all set to lose this year’s NBA Finals again. I might not be showing it too much, but I’m probably the Philippines’ number 1 Lebron James fan. Bullmastiffs, bird photography, NBA. Can 2016 be any worse when it comes to my passions?

Yes Lebron, you were the finale. He was counting on you to make everything right for him. Watching you is one of the two reasons he wants to live a long life (the other being he wants to see our son grow up. Yep, you before me. 😛 In fact, I remember that when I gave birth, he wanted us to go home as soon as possible because you had a game)
He’s willing to burn bridges with anyone who lambasts you.
So when you started winning, he also started to perk up.
And today, you made history. 🙂 More important, you made my husband very happy. Our entire household expects that he’ll be in a good mood for the next few days, thanks to you. He’ll realize all the more that indeed, he should live a healthy lifestyle so he could keep on watching you.
I don’t care about NBA, but I care about my husband so much. So Lebron, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU! Thank you for being a “once in a generation player”, and for being a huge part of bringing in one of the most exciting NBA Seasons ever.
