18-foot statue of Lebron James created (video and photos)

PrimeTime Amusements, a global operator, seller and event renter of video arcade machines and simulators, has built an 18-foot foam statue of Lebron James!

I don’t think James lacks self-assurance; but he might not be as psychologically ready to shoulder the enormous burdens and gigantic expectations placed upon him.

And in James’ media appearance Monday, one could easily read some uneasiness into his non-verbal communication. Of course, that could simply be because he knows how badly he (and his Miami Heat teammates) were out-played by Luol Deng (and the Chicago Bulls).
