As his televised announcement nears and the frenzy peaks, I have a suggestion: Instead of engaging in all the talk show speculation, consider spending some quiet time reading about him. You might consider the King James Bible -- whoops, wrong King James. Better yet, try "Shooting Stars," which chronicles James' pre-NBA basketball life with a group of friends in Akron. It was written with Buzz Bissinger of "Friday Night Lights" fame. An excerpt from the N.Y. Times review: "Inasmuch as James set out to celebrate the triumphs of five stalwart friends, 'Shooting Stars' is at times affecting. But as a fresh take on James as the Chosen One, or as a cautionary tale about the commercialization of young athletes, it's more tenuous."
