LeBron James led his Fighting Irish squad to a 101-6 win-loss record over four seasons, being named Ohio’s Mr. Basketball in his senior year and attracting national attention. Even in his high school days, James has already impressed with his unique combination of physique, skills, and basketball IQ making him one of the best, if not the best, prospects to come out of high school. Upon stepping into the NBA, The King did not disappoint and has so far built one of the most decorated careers of all time, winning 4 Most Valuable Player awards and two World Championships to top everything else.
