The guy who was anointed “The Chosen One” in high school not only embraced the hype, but exceeded it. Even at St. Vincent-St. Mary, his combination of size, athleticism and feel for the game let you know he had the potential to be an all-time great. He delivered on all that promise by evolving in every facet of the game, taking care of his body and becoming arguably the smartest and most complete player in basketball. With three championships (and three Finals MVPs), four Most Valuable Player awards and perhaps the greatest three-game run in NBA Finals history last June, James is the first true threat to Michael Jordan’s supremacy. Watch the throne.
