Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James is one of the greatest basketball players ever.
His efforts and dedication to the game have made him a lock for the Hall of Fame. Throughout his career, James has encountered many moments to remember, some moments you may know, some you may not.
Starting from the beginnings of his career, here are 15 things you may not have known about King James.
On numerous occasions, James said that if he decided to go to college instead of the NBA, he would have likely chosen Ohio State. In his talk with Larry King several years ago, he also mentioned the University of North Carolina as a possible landing spot.
14. Pass First
James is the best basketball player in the world. But of all his stats, assists are his favorite:
“I’ve always loved the success of my teammates more than myself,” James said in Chris Fedor’s article for Cleveland.com. “I’ve always been like that since I was a kid. Even when I first started playing basketball, we had a kid named Sonny on our team that was younger than all of us and he couldn’t catch. So, in order for him to catch we used to roll the ball to him so he could pick it up and shoot it off the ground. And when he finally made one, it was like the greatest thing for all of us.”
13. Cartoon Lover
James is a huge cartoon lover. His favorite cartoon show is ‘Tom & Jerry,’ but also says ‘Spongebob Squarepants’ is up there among his favorites. He also cracks a ton of ‘Family Guy’ jokes during practices.
