Much like his big homie Jay-Z, LeBron doesn’t like to waste time. He always makes sure he does things right the first time.
For example, here he is chilling on a basketball court with Steve Kroft of 60 Minutes for a special piece the show is doing on the soon-to-be MVP. And in the middle of a discussion about whether or not Bron thinks that he has yet reached his peak, he casually drills a 65-foot, underhand shot.
Luckily, the 60 Minutes cameraman was on it and captured the entire flight of the incredible shot. “How many times can you do that in a row? asks a dazzled Kroft. “I’m one take, baby, that’s all. I’m just one take,” smirks James.
Apparently, LeBron didn’t really understand how influential and wide-reaching Sports Illustrated was back when he graced the magazine’s cover as a high school junior in February 2002. He thought is was “just another sports magazine.” Aside from the fact that this admittance probably reveals a little bit about the bubble that LeBron lived in as a high school prodigy, it also quickly made the interviewer wonder if LeBron, now seven years older and wiser, realizes that 60 Minutes is kind of a big deal.
With a twinkle in his eye, Kroft asks, “Do you know what 60 Minutes is?” “Yeah,” replies James, who then waits for effect, “It’s an hour, right?”
I must have missed the twinkle, but I’ll take your word for it Mr. CBS Online Synopsis Writer.
