In high school, LeBron James was a big deal. That's part of the reason the future four-time NBA MVP was drafted first overall in 2003 by the Cleveland Cavaliers. James was just 18-years-old when he went straight from high school to the pros.
And while James has two NBA Championships added to his resume, too, one Ohio high school senior does have a few bragging rights over him — just in case the two ever meet up in the NBA.
Franklin High School's Luke Kennard passed LeBron James for fourth all-time on the Ohio high school scoring list after dropping 44 points in a recent game. Kennard now sits at 2,652 career points. (Video via WCPO)
