PLAYERS: The 123 Kid
An easy choice for the magazine and a great read by Lee Jenkins. Highlights include a focus on how LeBron’s intelligence impacts his game (“He’s not smart,” says [Duke basketball coach Mike] Krzyzewski. “He’s brilliant.

Read the whole thing and we’ll be back tomorrow, hopefully with an X’s and O’s post and maybe something else. ————— RELATED: A Ring for The King: The Kid from Akron is a World
