ABCD Camp: LeBron James


LeBron James

TEANECK, N.J. -

Scouts call LeBron James the best high school player in the nation, regardless of high school class -- and James supported that claim with a dominating opening performance at ABCD.

The crowd around Court 4 was on the edge of its seat as James showed flashes of his exceptional talent: Chasing an opponent down on a fast break and viciously thwarting his dunk attempt; Following a teammate's miss with a reverse slam putback.

James finished the game with 20 points, shooting 8-12 from the field.

Surpisingly, all the hype doesn't appear to effect James.

"It doesn't matter to me if I'm first or 100th," he said. "I'm going to play hard and help my team win."

He said college and the NBA are in the back of his mind right now, and rightly so - he still has two years of high school left.
