LeBron James Autographed SP Limited Rookie #3/50
The NBA is renowned for duos of generational superstar players. In the 1950s & '60s, there was Russell and Chamberlain; the '70s had Abdul-Jabbar, Dr. J and Robertson; the '80s featured Magic and Bird; Jordan and Shaq in the 1990s & the 2000s yielded Kobe and LeBron. Each new generational player endured comparisons to their predecessors, but none more that Kobe and LeBron being touted as the NEXT Michael Jordan. Kobe was without a doubt one of the great players of his generation and in history, LeBron has surpassed all expectations to stand behind only LA's Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Utah's Karl Malone Hall of Famers in All-Time career points and field goals which are well within reach. In the postseason, he owns the records for most games, minutes, field goals, points and career Finals points, trailing only LA HOFer Jerry West by a paltry 117 points. James won the 2004 NBA ROY, the 2008 scoring title and the NBA Finals MVP in each of his team's victories and is the only player in NBA history to lead three different franchises to NBA titles (MIA, CLE, LAL).
