“When I was 4, 5 years old, I started playing on a crate. We cut the bottom out, nailed it to the light pole, me and my friends. No backboard, so every shot had to go straight in, or you didn’t make it. And I remember that joy — playing on the street, cars interrupting our game, the ball going into the woods. Playing basketball, it did something to me,” said LeBron.
“Basketball: A Love Story” is authored by Jackie MacMullan and Rafe Bartholomew. It was first inspired by the 20-hour ESPN documentary with the same name.
