The former Cleveland Cavaliers and Miami Heat star has come a long way from his youth.
James has gone from being a kid with no clue on how to handle himself as a professional athlete to an all-star at a young age.
I interviewed James in Miami, which was the best time of my life.
I would sit with him, watch the games and talk basketball.
He was just as confident as he was as a child.
It was a really good time.
He has also learned from his mistakes, which he wasnt able to do as a kid.
When I ask him about his game today, he doesnt know what to do.
He doesnt have that big of a voice anymore.
He talks to himself all the time.
He says, “Man, I have to learn to play the game the right way.”
James, now 25, has had a huge impact on basketball since he entered the league in 2013.
He is the youngest player in NBA history to average 20 points per game and leads the league with 2,924 assists.
He has been named one of the 20 best players in the world.
His shot selection has improved to perfection, which has made him an elite scorer.
James is still in the process of finding his place in the NBA.
He will have to continue to work hard to earn that spot.
His talent has to be recognized in order to get to where he wants to be.
The Cavs have a chance to win this season without him.
If they do, James will be one of their biggest benefactors.
