While James was a local basketball star in Akron, Ohio, at that time, he was largely unknown to the rest of the nation when he came to play in a tournament for the AAU Oakland Soldiers in 2000. The Soldiers were founded in 1990 in the Oakland suburb of Richmond. Twenty-five years later, it has now grown into an AAU powerhouse with alumni that include James, Chauncey Billups, Brandon Jennings, Leon Powe, Aaron Gordon, Chuck Hayes, Jabari Brown, Kendrick Perkins and Stanley Johnson. Fifteen years after first playing for the Soldiers, James returns to the Bay Area to lead his Cleveland Cavaliers against the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals. “It’s amazing because that part of his life he never talks about publicly,” Olivier said. “But I thought we had some good times and we still talk about it.”

Gordon will play for the Magic’s Orlando Pro Summer League team in early July. He’ll continue to work with Dave Love, the shooting coach, and team officials expect Gordon will be among the team’s most diligent workers this offseason. It would be smart to be patient with Gordon. The 2015-16 season will be Gordon’s Age-20 season. “There’s definitely improvement needed,” Gordon said. “But there’s no ceiling for me, and I can just mold into any shape or form that I want.”
