Despite the distractions, the Irish won a third state
title, with James averaging 31.6 points, 9.6 rebounds, 4.6
assists and 3.4 steals on the season. James was named to
the ALL-USA first team for an unprecedented third time,
and selected as Mr. Basketball for the third year in a
row. He earned MVP honors at the McDonald’s All-American
Game, the EA sports round ball classic, and the Jordan
Capital Classic. Although it was a foregone conclusion, by
participating in more than two high school all-star
events, James officially lost his NCAA eligibility. James
finished his high school career with 2,657 points, 892
rebounds, and 523 assists.
James was selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers with the
first overall pick in the 2003 NBA draft. Facing the
Sacramento in his first NBA game, James scored 25 points,
9 assists, and 6 rebounds and 4 steals and shot 60% from
the floor. After recording a season high 41 points against
the New Jersey Nets, James became the youngest player in
history to score at least 40 points in game. He averaged
20.9 points, 5.9 assists, and 5.5 rebounds for the season.
He became the first Cavalier and youngest NBA player to
win the award. He joined Oscar Robertson and Michael
Jordan as the only players in the NBA to average 20
points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists per game in their rookie
season. The Cavaliers improved by 18 wins and concluded
the regular season with a 35-47 record, but played to make
the playoffs.
In the 2004-05 season, James was selected to his first NBA
All-Star game and recorded 13 points, 6 assists, and 8
rebounds as the Eastern All-stars defeated the Western All-
stars 125 to 115.
