This was reported on ESPN:
Still growing? Are you kidding me? 260 pounds that runs like a guard....just scary.Quote:
What might have been the biggest story of the week (in either conference) got almost no coverage, maybe because the New York press corps was focused on other angles when LeBron James was in its midst.
You barely heard a follow-up word about LeBron unexpectedly informing us that, at 23, he actually is still growing.
Unless he was exaggerating for press-duping effect, LeBron sneaked that provocative revelation into his postgame address Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden. When he wasn't scoffing at the idea of someday joining the Knicks or shooting down the story that he shouted to Spike Lee he would be scoring 50 points that night, James volunteered an interesting explanation for why he wasn't worried when a fan sprinted onto the MSG floor after a 3-pointer in the final minute got him to the big five-oh.
"I'm 6-9, 260," James said. "I'm all right."
He's suddenly an inch taller and 20 pounds heavier than his listed (and sufficiently frightening) dimensions, again assuming that he wasn't just making sure he got a laugh from his audience.
I've since been assured by a trusted Clevelander that LBJ wasn't [/b]exaggerating.
