With these wishes, one of them stood out more than the others. Another very familiar face made sure to share his love — Cleveland Cavaliers star, LeBron James:

This is not the first time the two have interacted with each other. During the presentation of the new Spurs statement jerseys, Murray was rocking some classic LeBron’s. As a result, James had to make sure that he reached out.

The upcoming season is huge for Murray. Starting point guard Tony Parker is still recovering from an injury and will be out until at least January. Due to the this, Murray will be taking over the starting point guard position.
At 21 years old, Murray has played in one season with the Spurs. During this season he scored 3.4 points and was able to dish at least one assist per game.
He is looking to take his game to the next level next season. And this is the perfect time to do it since the Spurs will be using a faster offense.
Since he was working out with star point guard Isaiah Thomas, it looks like he is learning from the best.
