    I dont think many people his age in this game can live up and perform at the level he did. Even great players couldnt do what Lebron did at his age. Says a lot about his maturity physically as well as his mental makeup, very mature for his age. All this being raised without a dad and by his single mother, very impressive.

          Lebron played against elite HS competition. Zion played agaiants a bunch of skinny nerds

              How were they comparing Zion to this? Not even close.

                Reading some of the haters commenting just makes me laugh. I need for them to list 5 players that lived up to the kind of pressure he was put under from the jump.
                I sure bet all the haters are golsen state fans who welcomed KD with open arms because they know their team couldn't beat a healthy LBJ team. LMAO....

                    Lebron is the greatest unselfish player on court

                        People saying Emoni Bates is better than Lebron as a freshmen. "Lebron was good, but Emoni is dominant." Wait, what? Are you high? Lebron was a freaking monster in high school that led a trash team to a title. Gtfo

                            Lebrun James talked faster and had a lighter voice back then because he was still a kid even though he was 6’7 235 lbs.

                                    I didn’t watch basketball back then (shit I was 9 in 2003 so it wouldn’t matter probably) but this shit may never be replicated. Even Zion wasn’t doing this in the age of the internet

                                          he's actually the biggest bust ever... if he would have just played his natural position of facilitator, i think he would have won more, instead, he started wanting to be better than jordan, and started to not play his natural game... which ruined things..

                                            these high school guys are always so overhyped. i searched this guy in the ncaa basketball database and looks like he never even played college basketball. so overrated.

                                            I can’t wait to see this guy make it to the NBA, I think he could be the next LeBron James.

                                                    The more I watch lbj the more I realize Zion would have bust his ass...

                                                    And LeBron did not live up to the hype who expected LeBron to always be begging for help. And constantly losing in the finals , his expectations was higher then Micheal Jordan so no he did not live up to the hype he's good but he not even in the conversation for the greatest of all time..
