Flashback: LeBron James Wins Gold

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (June 2001) -- Months after nearly beating Oak Hill, LeBron James does his thing on a truly national stage. From here one out the legend would continue to grow.

LeBron James led his USA North team to the title at the USA Basketball Youth Development Festival. His greatness on this day wasn't measured in stats, though they were very good, but rather how he methodically reeled in the East team until finally delivering his team the Gold Medal.

The shot chart doesn't tell you about the tomahawk dunk from the wing or the respect everyone on the court felt for his abilities.
