Dear KING readers,

I know you're consumed with the undefeated Tennessee Titans, the streaking New York Giants and who's going to be in the BCS title game right now.

But, when you get a chance, turn to ESPN on a Wednesday night or TNT on a Thursday night.

The NBA season has gotten off to an exciting start and Lebron James—again—is proving that he might not have the best team, but that he is most valuable to his team.

More so than Chris Paul and, yes, more so than Kobe Bryant.

James has the Cavs off to an 8-2 start and is averaging 30 points, eight rebounds, seven assists and two steals per game.

While those are—essentially—normal stats for him, it's his defense that has been amped up thus far this season.

With James as a catalyst, Mike Brown's team is giving up just 92.54 points per game this season—fifth best in the Association.

Too often we take genius for granted. Then, when it leaves us too early, we pray and hope that one day something half as unique will bless us with its presence.

Bob Marley. Jimi Hendrix. Len Bias. Lauryn Hill.

Let's not take as talented and unique player as there has ever been in organized team sports for granted.
