He is indulging in several other things than just on-court action. Whether rehabilitating his foot injury, handing a well-structured speech at ESPY Awards, changing back his jersey number or supporting Messi in his first Inter-Miami game, he is going with the flow. James’ relationship with football is not new. Despite his tight schedule, he has always taken advantage of his global reach to support the sport.
