Best Answer

James LeBron 4 sure. I did a report on him and as i was reading the book i came across that fact.


i really don't think lebron won a 3 point contest, dirk nowitzki and Jason kapono have been repeatedly winning them recently, and in the beginning of his career lebron wasn;t a good 3 shooter.
