As if being the Spelling Bee champion wasn’t enough for Gokul Venkatachalam, the young child has also received a special care package straight from LeBron James as well. Sporting a James jersey under his shirt during the National Spelling Bee, which was aired on ESPN, got the whole country talk, not because of how good of a speller he was, but the fact that he was wearing his favorite player’s jersey as well.

Venkatachalam received two boxes of footwear from James’ camp: one was from the LeBron James Family Foundation – an unseen(!) pair of the Nike LeBron 11 Elite, which LeBron didn’t even wear himself. The second pair came from the Cavaliers, who gave him a pair of the LeBron 12 “All Star”. The Cavs’ gift came with an autograph from James that said, “Congrats on being spelling ‘B’ champ.”

Sharing a National Spelling Bee championship has to be cool for Venkatachalam, but receiving a care package from his favorite player and the best basketballer in the world might even mean more to him.
