LBJ is in his 20th NBA season and has achieved a lot throughout his career. In short, King James’ NBA career is what dreams are made of. LeBron is a four-time NBA champion, four-time NBA Finals MVP, four-time regular season MVP, 19-time NBA All-Star, and much more.

Recently, LBJ passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to become the NBA‘s all-time scoring leader. Honestly, LeBron has an immaculate record and awards list which is hard to match and compete with.

The only player that LeBron James has been constantly compared with is none other than the great Michael Jordan.

An alleged Kindergarten photo of LeBron James has gone viral

LeBron James and Michael Jordan have always been in the middle of the GOAT debate. The fans of both these players debate endlessly to put these players on a higher pedestal than the another. But this time, the scenario is a little different.

Recently on Twitter, one account posted an image comparing Michael Jordan and LeBron James’ supposed kindergarten photos.

The photo was posted by Buttcrack Sports and has been already viewed over 6.6 million times.

In the photo, we can see LeBron on the left-hand side with glasses, a red sweater and braces. On the right-hand side is a black-and-white photo of a young MJ. Notably, in the photo, LeBron is fatter than MJ, which has drawn hilarious reactions from social media users.

The photo is captioned as ‘LeBron James vs Michael Jordan in kindergarten’

Here are some of the reactions of Twitter users after seeing the photo of these two NBA legends.

Is the Kindergarten photo of LeBron James real?

The question definitely arises if the kindergarten photo of LeBron James and Michael Jordan is real or not.

However, as many people have pointed out, the childhood photo of LBJ is not real.

The post originated from ‘Buttcrack Sports’, a pretty well-known satirical Twitter account that posts parody content that often fools fans.

So, it is safe to say that the photo of LeBron James in kindergarten is not really the Lakers star. It’s highly unlikely it’s a real person at all.

Furthermore, LBJ fans went ahead and responded by sharing an actual photo of LeBron James in elementary school and it’s nothing like the photo in the original post.

Moreover, the elementary school which LeBron attended is not known because he moved around a lot as a kid as his dad wasn’t around. However, we do know he started playing organized basketball in the fifth grade.

King James played AAU basketball for the Northeast Ohio Shooting Stars with friends Sian Cotton, Dru Joyce III, and Willie McGee.

That ‘Fab Four’ eventually chose to attend St. Vincent–St. Mary High School which put LeBron on the road towards becoming an NBA legend.
