I was LeBron James before LeBron James.
It's always been a passion of mine to come out and share some of my knowledge about basketball and the experiences I've had with the younger generation.
When I look back at my first few seasons in the NBA, we didn't dominate as a team. There were a lot of nights where we took a beating and got whacked across the head. But we got better along the way, and we started to taste the success. With that came the pressure and expectations to be successful.
If you can prove that you're in that elite class on a consistent basis, it speaks volumes about a player's longevity. It also says that as a player, you were steady, stable, and great and that you deserve to be recognized.
I can be 60 years old, but I can always go back and play like I once did by just playing a video game. It's really great.
It's not common for your best player to also be your most unselfish player.
