Example text

It is often true in ways they do not suspect. James needed protection. He was too “special” to be left to his own devices, for he would be mobbed by admirers and diverted from actually being able to graduate from high school. Doors closed to others do open to the gifted, however. In 2001, during the summer leading up to his junior year, James was invited to attend informal workouts at Hoops The Gym, the Chicago basketball haven where Michael Jordan trained and legendary pickup games involving him and other pros were conducted out of public view.

In more innocent times, students usually attended the school where they lived. Over time, that simple approach has changed. Street agents help steer star players to high schools to play for a specific coach. Sometimes a brother or cousin could come along, too. Sometimes adults overwhelmed the player. This time the players were in charge. They wanted to stick together and by selecting a private school with no geographical boundaries, they could. LeBron James was the prize catch, but the others were also first-class players who would be welcome additions to just about any high school team.

Autograph collecting inhabited a different sphere in the sports memorabilia subculture in the 2000s than it did in 1960s America. For decades, obtaining autographs was an activity for young sports fans waiting outside the gates of a stadium, darting down to the railing at a baseball park, or shouting out a player’s name. Kids handed over notebooks, scraps of paper, or collector cards and cherished the signed sheets they received for a while, before they grew up, became distracted by girls, and lost them or tossed them.
