LeBron James Has Picture of Michael Jordan Guarding Him for His Phone Background
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.
