WATCH: LeBron James in ‘More Than a Game’
Before there was “King James,” there was the “Fab Four.”
Back in the day, Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James was part of an elite team of high school basketball players.
In More Than a Game, a documentary which was first released in 2009, fans received an inside look at James’ high school career.
Together, Sian Cotton, Dru Joyce III,Willie McGhee and James became known as the Shooting Stars, a traveling team that began in an Akron, Ohio Salvation Army gymnasium.
This week, CNN Films Presents will air the special in anticipation of the 2014-2015 regular NBA season.
“The team was like a family,” McGhee states in the documentary. “You play your heart out for your family.”
More Than a Game airs Friday, October 24 at 10 p.m. ET. Check out a clip below:
