On This Day: Rookie LeBron James’ NBA debut impressive

On October 30, 2003, 18-year-old basketball prodigy LeBron James scores 25 points, grabs six rebounds and dishes out nine assists, but his Cleveland Cavaliers lose to the more experienced Sacramento Kings, 106-92. His debut is one of the most impressive in league history—only months earlier, James had graduated from high school.

“I was able to make a lot of moves I made in high school,” James said afterward, via the Chicago Tribune. “I just had to bring a lot more power. They’re a lot stronger in the NBA. Most of the moves I used in high school I used out here.”
