James has been on the cover of Sports Illustrated 18 times and made his cover debut on the Feb. 18, 2002 issue as a high school junior under the now famous tag: THE CHOSEN ONE. He revealed on Wednesday that the screensaver of his phone is a Photoshop image of himself handling the ball while guarded by Michael Jordan in his prime. “Jordan was my superhero growing up,” James said. “He was the guy I feel helped me get to where I am today. As a competitor, who would not want to go against the best? That's like asking [Tom] Brady would he want to go against Montana in the fourth quarter.”
Incidentally, I have a picture of J. Camm blogging next to me as my phone’s background. I love feeling that close to greatness.
