Aaron Miller is a Special Olympian. On Tuesday, at halftime of the Cleveland Cavaliers 89-77 win over the Boston Celtics at the Garden, Miller was recognized for the MVP award at the city’s recent Special Olympics competition. LeBron James decided he wanted to take things a step further, and took time out during the game to run to the sideline and acknowledge Miller personally. You know, give him props. From one MVP to another.
What made this all so perfect is the look of pure delight on Miller’s face when he realized that James didn’t come over looking for anyone but him.

After the game, James made sure to seek Miller out and gave him the shoes off of his feet.

Aaron Miller is awesome, LeBron James is awesome, and shoes are kind of awesome, too. This is your periodic reminder that stuff– and people – can be pretty awesome sometimes.
