I’m glad we finally know where a guy you’ll never meet will get paid an obscene amount of money to play a game. I like baseball and basketball but don’t understand the rabid nature with which people follow it. I might understand if LeBron was interviewed and said, “Well, today was a rough one. Turns out Pete Dinkmen at Farmer’s Insurance didn’t get that promotion. He was qualified, but someone else got it. I’m going to let how this situation turned out effect my entire day and maybe my week.” But that will never happen. Congratulations Cleveland, I just hope Durant doesn’t decide to go to Cleveland too. We’ll see.

In honor of LeBron, Cleveland’s prodigal son, we’ve compiled some amazing fun facts about LeBron. We’ll give you the answers after the standings.

1. LeBron is one of two players to win a regular season MVP, NBA Finals MVP and an Olympic Gold in the same year. Who was the other?

2. What English Premier League club does LeBron James own a part of?

3. What football position did LeBron Jame play in high school?

4. Behind LeBron, who is the second highest paid NBA player when it comes to endorsements?

5. Which former Cleveland Cav allegedly slept with LeBron’s mom?
