Coach K has seen his fair share of talent, so when he called LeBron James the “most unique player to ever play basketball,” that is one of the highest compliments an athlete of any sport can receive.
After winning gold for Team USA in basketball, Coach K raved about LeBron’s performance stating:
“He’s the most unique player to ever play basketball because he can play every position, both offensively and defensively.”
“I love LeBron,” Krzyzewski said. “He was our leader. He’s the best player on this planet. And I think he can even get better, as he accomplishes more.”
“We can rave about his physical talents, but they’re matched, they’re definitely matched, by his leadership qualities and his brilliance,” he said. “He’s a really, really smart guy. Right now, he’s in command of all those things.
“He has a great heart, great mind, great voice and a great body. No one has had all of that. I can’t say anything more than that about him. I mean, he’s the best.”

Having Wade and Bosh leading him into the playoffs wouldn’t have been enough to takedown a Chicago Bulls powerhouse, with a healthy Derrick Rose of course.
But like most things dealing with the reality of LeBron James, this is sadly overlooked.
Rose tore his ACL last season in their first game of the playoffs. Such has been the luck of...
USC commit Roschon Prince had his share of highlights at the LeBron James Skills Academy and Pangos All-American Camp. Here's a highlight reel of Prince at both events.
The Olympics have come and went, but the dominance of LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Carmelo Anthony in the Olympics is still imbedded in our membrane, so why not revisit the best plays from Team USA Basketball during the 2012 Olympics. What’s your favorite? I’m partial to Russell Westbrook’s powerful dunks.
If you’ve been paying attention, its been quite the year for some athletes. And though Tim Tebow seems to grab all the headlines now that he’s in NYC – no matter what he’s doing, there’s some other guys that bump him off the pedestal as King of Sports. While our hate for LeBron James is [...]
Jim Boeheim knows basketball. Certainly more than you and I, that’s probably no secret.
So that’s why when he took to the airways of ESPN radio on Colin Cowherd’s show and said what he indeed said, people started to listen. Boeheim said the following on LeBron James:
“He’s a leader. He gets on the court, he tells people what to do … this guy can guard...
Nostalgia is a crazy thing, sometimes things we remember as larger than life are just merely great. A perfect case in point are the arguments surrounding the Dream Team and 2012 Olympic Team debate, but I digress.
