Well, now we do. (How is Larry Bird only four years younger than Bill Walton?!) I don't have much to say right now, but I will include this video which is extraordinary:
The first time I saw LeBron James play was on the nationally televised high school game against Oak Hill Academy. Before the game, then-announcer Bill Walton came right out and said that James was 'the best high school player he had ever seen.' In that game, James scored 31, with 13 rebounds and 6 assists; yet, only went 12-25 from the field. There were moments of greatness, but the incredible pressure of national TV had clearly compromised his performance. No longer. "History! LeBron Nets 61, Heat Top Bobcats, 124-107" by Tim Reynolds on abcnews.com In a career-high scoring effort, James shot 22-33 from the field, including his first *eight* 3-point attempts. He scored 25 points in the 3rd quarter alone. James makes greatness look easy - he dominates without looking like he's dominating. Who do you go with right now, James or Durant? It's so nice having both to see, to witness. Career stats
Bill Russell is best-known for his defensive skills and rebounding. But then there's this: And here's an ESPN "SportsCentury" documentary: There's an incredible statistic on that documentary that I'd never heard before: In a career total of 30 games in which Bill Russell's team (including the NBA playoffs, the NCAA's, and the Olympics) faced elimination, his record was 28-2.
