Can't we just fast-forward this story until he's out of the NBA, down on his
luck, wondering what went wrong with his life?

Don't worry, the 2005 season isn't all that far off.

Why the hostility towards Lebron?  He made a mistake accepting the
jerseys....we'll al probably get over it.  

Other than that, I don't see anything that I can slam James for.  Going to the
nba right after high school is certainly the right decision from a financial
standpoint as it allows him to get a max contract a few years sooner.  It also
guarantees a big shoe contract right now instead of two or three years from
now.  I'd do the same thing if I was him.

And looking at the success of former  *highly touted* players who went straight
from high school to the NBA, it's hard to say he made the wrong choice.
Garnett, Bryant, Mcgrady, Jermaine Oneal.  It's too early to make a call on the
2001 draft and the slew of youngsters that came out then.  Overall though, it's
clear that elite high school supserstars skipping school for the nba have been
very successful.  Michael
