The Dawn Of LeBron

Charles Pierce of Slate gets his first look at LeBron James.

His game is modest. That's the first thing you notice about him. He doesn't force anything, unlike his teammate Darius Miles, the up-from-high-school sensation of a couple of years back who looks as though he'll never learn that simplest of all rookie lessons. James' jump shot is still an inconsistent jumble of mismatched motions, but he doesn't press it, either. His vision and his sense of the game's rhythms, however, are exquisitely mature and damned near flawless. If some of the Cavaliers don't get accustomed to that part of his game, James is going to kill one of them some night with a pass.
