LeBron James ‘Never Guessed’ He’d Pass Jordan as NBA Playoff Scoring King

CLEVELAND — The Chosen One did not ask for hops or crazy handles. He did not pray to the heavens for a silky jumper.

The Chosen One asked simply for court vision—for the glory of the team.

We know this because once upon a time, when his game was young and his cheeks were baby-smooth, LeBron James burst into a virtual church and began zipping no-look passes to a jubilant congregation of King James disciples.

The church elders, Jerry West and Dr. J, smiled in approval.

The preacher promptly fainted.

It was 2004. James was a 19-year-old prodigy, just a few months into his rookie season. And if you had yet to see him play, you learned everything you needed to know in “Book of Dimes,” a joyful 60-second shoe commercial that cast James as a basketball messiah who would deliver the NBA from a generation of me-first gunners with his selfless play.
