LeBron James is one of the greatest players in NBA history, but this letter he wrote to 19-year-old Emanuel Duncan shows that even off the court he’s still one of the greatest.

You see, Emanuel Duncan has Duchenne muscular dystrophy and as such he might not live past his twenties and he has a wish on his bucket list that he’d like to complete.

Reports Gregg Doyel of the Indianapolis Star

“My bucket list is to meet LeBron,” he tells me. “That’s the one thing I want to do. Meet LeBron James. That’s my role model. He inspires me to do everything. To be a good person, to put other people first, to live your life and do what makes you happy. If I meet LeBron James, that would make my day. I wouldn’t ask for anything.”

Of course, that’s not an uncommon wish for any NBA fan, but what is uncommon is the fact that LeBron James heard about Duncan and responded with this very touching letter.
