Last Stop on Nike Tour

Prior to the close of the Nike Tourstop this past weekend LeBron said a few words to those gathered around the court in Akron.

I was actually standing right next to Coach Dru Joyce while LeBron spoke, and even though he was right in front of me, I wasn’t really paying attention to what he was saying.  Sorry ‘Bron ‘Bron.  While I was standing there I couldn’t help but think about a comment Coach Dru made on stage earlier in the day, about his thoughts, way back when, on this whole thing, one day playing out on the big screen.

Coach Dru Joyce:

“We really didn’t realize this was gonna be a movie until these guys were about three years out of high school.  Up until then, we didn’t know, at that time we were just living our lives.”
