Video: 10 years of PTI discussing LeBron James

Somehow I missed this last week, but given LeBron James won SI's Sportsman of the Year award earlier today, it was worth sharing.  This video from Grantland features a 15 minute compilation of several PTI discussions about LeBron James between Michael Wilbon and Tony Kornheiser over the years.  The video goes all the way back to LeBron James driving a Hummer in high school, through the NBA Draft, his highs and lows with the Cavaliers, The Decision, and his championship in Miami.  This is simply one of the more fascinating compilations I've seen from a sports website as it documents the conversation around the most talked about athlete of the last decade.  Grantland continues to impress with the original material produced there.

My favorite highlight was hearing this quote from TK in 2003 before the NBA Draft.

"If Darko maxes out, I believe he's the best of the bunch."

Safe to say Darko didn't max out.
