Lebron James Childhood Friend Shot and Killed In Akron, OH

(AllHipHop News) Last week Lebron James celebrated his marriage to longtime girlfriend Savannah Brinson, but two days ago (September 18th) he mourned the death of a longtime friend. 28 year old Alfonso Golden was shot dead while driving in Akron, OH.

According to reports, Golden was shot around 8:30 a.m. inside his 2005 Dodge Magnum driving west of East Waterloo Road by an unidentified driver inside a tan-colored SUV. Golden was shot dead in a “hail of gunfire so loud it awoke neighbors from their sleep” according to 19 Action News reporter Blake Chenault.

Golden had an extensive history of legal infractions as he was charged with 21 crimes in the past decade, half were felonies which included guns and drug offenses.

Lebron James went to his personal Twitter and Instagram accounts to show his hurt to the news:

    Tragic indeed. Wow, 2 people who definitely went in different directions.

    “Because the streets is a short stop
    Either you’re slingin crack rock or you got a wicked jumpshot…”

    RIP Alfonso Golden… smh… life’s way of showing you this could have been Lebron

      I know right! What an eerie similarity to B.I.G.’s rhymes from his classic first album regarding these 2 brothers’ lives.

      Its tragic that their lives definitely imitated art.

      Not to go off subject, but although LeBron James is a great player in the current era, his game is a living contradiction to that “wicked jump shot” lyric because he has never had a great jumper based on his primarily great inside game. But he has indeed improved his jumper. He’ll never be considered a player with a great shot though.

        I wasn’t, of course, tryin to dirt homies memory, but there are chances this could be streetlife related

        I do agree that, although it has improved, Lebron’s jump shot is not his best weapon

      • therealest1

        I know you weren’t trying to taint the dead guy’s lifestyle. But it was his choice that got him killed unfortunately.

        Had he stayed on the right path, perhaps LeBron James could’ve helped him get some legitimate and safer work like with Nike or some of his other endorsements. I know James has his closest friends working at Nike for sure.

        This dead man seemed to have a good connection to James if he acknowledged his passing like that. Too bad he didn’t take advantage of trying to legitimately come up on James’ opportunities.
