LeBron James has risen to become the indisputable best basketball player in the world. Standing at 6’8″, 250+ lbs, LeBron can do it all. He can effectively play every position on the court, both offensively and defensively. He elevates the play of his teammates and the efficiency of his individual scoring is changing the way we look at scorers in the NBA. Today, we take a look at LeBron’s high school career and remember his humble origins. Oh wait, they weren’t so humble were they? It’s easy to remember LeBron’s origins because his was the most publicized and touted high school career in history. LeBron made his first Sports Illustrated cover in 2002 at the tender age of 17.

47 Rare Photos Of Lebron James In High School

That white boy looks terrified.  If you don't think that he has this once in a lifetime photograph of being blown by on the basketball by the King himself, you might want to consider therapy.  If I was the bro looking like I just pooped my pants as Lebron dribbled passed me, I'd have this on a mantle over the fireplace. Anyways, here are 46 other great photos of Lebron...

LeBron and CP3 Mentor a Young James Harden & Steph Curry in 2008 (Video)

  There’s a reason why LeBron James and Chris Paul are the best players at their respective positions, and that’s because they work relentlessly at their craft.

Frank Vogel Didn’t Refer To Miami As “Just Another Team”

LeBron James created the non-storiest of non-stories Sunday, when he responded to Indiana Pacers head coach Frank Vogel referring to the Miami Heat as “just another team”. Unfortunately for LeBron, that’s not what Vogel said at all.

Heat can be beat and LeBron knows it

LeBron James' overreaction to the media-ginned "just another team" controversy strikes me as Miami Heat vulnerability. Dan Le Batard's whining about the New York Knicks losing in the Eastern Conference semifinals strikes me as Miami Heat vulnerability. Dwyane Wade's sore knee strikes me as Miami Heat vulnerability. So does the sloppy, referee-assisted way...

The NBA needs the Pacers to push the Heat

Everyone in the NBA is way too friendly. Opponents used to hate one another. When was the last time we saw ourselves a nice quality heated rivalry? The Pistons and Pacers looked to be on their way to one in 2004 when Ben Wallace shoved Ron Artest, but that was avoided when Artest and Stephen Jackson charged the stands instead. We probably would have to go back to the old Knicks and...
