    Lakers' LeBron James surprises Grizzlies arena employee with autographed shoes

    LeBron James may enjoy the Warriors more than their fans enjoy him, but that doesn't mean Golden State fans won't enjoy a random act of kindness. 

    During the fourth quarter of the Lakers' 111-88 win over the Memphis Grizzlies, James signed and handed his game-worn shoes to a FedEx Forum employee. The geture clearly meant a lot to her.

    After the game, James explained to reporters in that he always saw the employee wearing a pair of his kicks on trips to Memphis, and he wanted to give back.

    "She's always worn a very exclusive pair of my shoes," James said, "and I've always noticed it. I've never said anything to her, and tonight I said something to her for the first time where she was like, 'Yeah, I've always been [on] team LeBron. Always.' So, she got a pair of LeBrons."

    Warriors fans won't be on team LeBron when he and the Lakers visit Oracle Arena on Christmas Day. In the meantime, though? 

    It's plenty understandable if they are.
