His teammates called him "Elvis" because of his fame. They laughed when he donned a wig and sunglasses so he could walk around a mall without being noticed.
Yes, LeBron James was big news when he joined the Cleveland Cavaliers 10 years ago, But could anybody have envisioned back then the prodigy from Akron, Ohio, would end up being this legendary of a player?

Whenever LeBron James comes to Cleveland, the discussion begins.
Will James return to the Cavaliers? Will he remain with the Heat? Will he wind up in some other unsuspected destination?
Theyre all legit questions.
We have nothing close to the answers to any.
All we know for sure is the Heat have won 23 straight games, or just 10 shy of the all-time NBA record, entering Wednesdays...
The Cleveland Cavaliers had a heck of a lead over the Miami Heat tonight. It looked the Cavs had a good shot at stopping the streak. The Cavaliers went into the locker room at the half with a 55-34 lead over the heat. The Cavs were playing some great basketball and they were doing it without 2 over their first round picks over the last 2 season. Both Waiters and Irving were out for...
CLEVELAND -- LeBron James is back in Cleveland, which means the question had to be asked.

Unlike two seasons ago -- when James hinted playing for the team that drafted him was a possibility -- he gave the politically correct response...
am sitting in the corner of a dimly lit room and the smiling face of CJ Miles looms over my right shoulder. The only illumination to be found comes from low-wattage track lighting which hangs from the ceiling and the glow from a wall of monitors that cascades the front of this otherwise neutral-toned space. This wall, split into seven main columns, houses roughly three-dozen...
For all of the pre-game routines that NBA players plod through, it is the post-game rewind that keep CJ Miles up at night. Following games, the Cavaliers swingman often stays awake until 4- or 5-o’clock in the morning, watching a replay of the recent game and then re-watching it in his mind, conjuring up the things he did right, but mostly criticizing himself for the things he...
The Miami Heat vs. Cleveland Cavaliers game Wednesday had tons of subtext before the opening jump ball. Obviously the Cavs are LeBron’s former team and the fans felt betrayed when he took his talents to South Beach. Plus, the Heat were attempting to win game number 24 of their current win streak.
The game started almost an hour late because of condensation on the floor due to...
