About this ebook

This is not just a sports story. This is not just a political story, nor is this just a pop culture story. This is a story about a script written in 1984 about a star baller, who cares deeply about his community, has no father in the home, with the last name James who skipped college and went straight to the pros just like Lebron James.

I believe and will testify to all facts herein. I believe that this is a prophetic message to our nation sent 35 years ago from God for today.


Lace-up your Nike's as we take a 35 year journey starting in 1984, the greatest year in NBA off-court history. Michael Jordan was drafted. Lebron was born in Akron, Ohio, and a Stern new commissioner named David stepped up to the plate.


The story timelines MJ's career, Lebron's life, and the NBA, quilted together with pop culture, politics, and the life of the young Scribe (writer) who copyrighted the script when he was 23 years old.


We end the timeline in 2018. We, then, shoot forward 23 years with a bold prediction of America's future around the season 2040-2041, and now, We Are All Witnesses!
