Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James has a long history of accolades dating back to his freshman year of high school at St. Vincent-St. Mary in Akron. As a freshman, LeBron won a Division III state title - Maverick Carter, LeBron's manager and close friend, was a senior on that team - and LeBron averaged 21 points and 6 rebounds per game.

Today at practice, Keith Dambrot - LeBron's first ever high school coach - paid a visit. Via ESPN's Dave McMenamin:

Dambrot is currently the head coach of the Akron Zips men's basketball team, which is typically one of the best programs in the Mid-American Conference. He's been the head coach there since 2004 and first was an assistant on the Zips' staff a year after he coached LeBron as a freshman.
