Kings recruit ‘LeBron James Kid’ to introduce LeBron James (vid)


Wednesday night marked LeBron James’ final game at the Sacramento Kings’ Sleep Train Arena — the very same court he made his NBA debut on Oct. 29, 2003 when it was called Arco Arena. To commemorate the event, the Kings recruited viral video star “LeBron James Kid” to do pregame introductions.

For the uninitiated, “LeBron James Kid” is actually a youngster named Terrance Jackson, who rose to the status of iconic Internet legend thanks to his brother putting together a Vine of him saying the NBA superstar’s name over and over and over and over in a distinctly drawl-like manner.

That video has been looped over an astounding 52 million times. That’s a lot of “LeBRON Jaaaames.”

And there was Terrance Jackson, seated courtside to roll call the starting lineup for the Cavaliers.

And of course he pulled off the pregame intros with aplomb and style with his patented “LeBron James” opening things up.

Fantastic. Well done, Sacramento Kings. And a well-deserved bravo, “LeBron James Kid.”

Given the existential crisis James seems to be suffering through of late with all the cryptic tweets and whatnot, hopefully the unique introduction brought a smile to his face.
