LeBron James is unique, to say the least. Not only to the Cleveland Cavaliers or the current NBA, but unique in terms of the entirety of basketball since Naismith invented the glorious game. Hardly has there been a more speculated about player in the Association, perhaps ever, and justly so. LeBron’s impact on the game of basketball goes beyond numbers and jersey and shoe sales, which is why he is so speculated about. He has been compared and contrasted with current NBA stars (see Kobe v. LeBron) and NBA legends (notably: Magic, MJ, Dominique, etc.), yet he is completely original in style and substance.
