Lebron James High School Sports Illustrated February 18 2002 Issue - This issue's cover features legend LeBron James (also includes the Winter Olympics) and is his very first one when he was still in high school. Excellent condition.
A 6 ft 8 in (2.03 m) small forward, he has been an NBA champion, the NBA Finals MVP, a three-time NBA MVP, and the NBA Rookie of the Year. One of Miami's co-captains along with Dwyane Wade, he is an eight-time NBA All-Star and has earned eight All-NBA honors and four All-Defensive honors. He is also the Cleveland Cavaliers' all-time leading scorer.
Nicknamed "King James", James played high school basketball at St. Vincent – St. Mary High School in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. A three-time "Mr. Basketball of Ohio", he was highly promoted in the national media as a future NBA superstar. After graduating, he was selected with the first overall pick of the 2003 NBA Draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers. In 2010, he left the Cavaliers for the Heat in a highly publicized free agency period. In 2012, he led Miami to their second ever NBA title, winning his first overall. His list of achievements and leadership during the Heats' 2012 championship run have led a majority of basketball analysts, experts, and writers to consider him the best player in the NBA today.
Off the court, James has accumulated considerable wealth and fame as a result of numerous endorsement contracts. His public life has been the subject of much scrutiny, and he has been ranked as one of America's most disliked and influential athletes. Having shown a passion for entertainment, he has been featured in books, documentaries, and television commercials, and has hosted the ESPY Awards and Saturday Night Live.
