Few would dispute that LeBron James has been “Chosen.” Chosen to be a high school phenom that has thus far been able to meet, if not exceed, ridiculously high expectations? Check. Chosen to be one of the most athletically gifted ballers anyone can remember? Check. Chosen to be the face of the NBA? Check. Chosen to be the best who ever did it? He’s quite a few rings away, but he’s still many months away from his 25th birthday. Damn. — Adam Fleischer
