LeBron James is playing in is fourth consecutive NBA Finals and gunning for his third consecutive NBA title. He’s being called by some the greatest small forward ever and he hasn’t yet reached his 30th birthday. We take a look back at the growing legend in his first national cover story in the November 2001 edition of Student Sports Magazine when James was entering his junior season at St. Vincent-St. Mary (Akron, Ohio).
“Lenny Cooke” is a documentary about the quick rise, and dramatic downward spiral, of an early 2000’s high school basketball standout from Brooklyn with aspirations of being a first round selection in the 2002 NBA Draft. A poor work ethic, raw and inexperienced game, media and scout-driven over-hype, and a series of shaky off-the-court decisions led to Cooke going undrafted. The documentary captures Cooke’s rise, the seeds of his downfall and where he’s at in life today. “Lenny Cooke” is recommended viewing for young players with NBA dreams, parents who may not know the inner-working of the grassroots basketball machine, or anyone with a general interest in basketball or the education of America’s youth.
