Default 'Friday Night Lights' author: Why LeBron needs to leave

'Friday Night Lights' author: Why LeBron needs to leave

PHILADELPHIA When I first met LeBron James in 2008, I was in awe. He was 23 at the time and I was 53, yet it seemed as if the ages were reversed. He had been a basketball legend for years. As we embarked on a book project together, he had an affable poise that contrasted with my own babbling efforts to build rapport. I ascribed to him a worldly wisdom.

I did not see him as the young man he was. I put him on a precarious pedestal, as if he had already reached perfection athletically and emotionally, when of course he hadn't. Initially at least, I did exactly what the metropolitan areas of Cleveland and Akron, Ohio, have done: looked on him as a god, without fault or foible.

Which is why I believe LeBron James has to declare free agency and leave the Cleveland Cavaliers. Not simply for the pursuit of a championship ring, but for his own emotional and professional growth.

Although I have long predicted that he will go to the New York Knicks, the more I mull it, the more I understand how difficult it will be for him to leave Ohio. For all that his life has been a tremendous heaping of can-you-believe-he-did-that, personally James has been anything but adventuresome. I can't think of an athlete so firmly attached to his roots, almost as if he is terrified to leave home.
