Perkins and LeBron have been teammates since playing in the AAU. The 2002 Oakland Soldiers were one of the most dominant AAU teams assembled.
LeBron joined the Oakland Soldiers just two years before his NBA debut and went on to help them win every tournament they entered. Future NBA Championship teammates Kendrick Perkins and Leon Powe appeared especially dominant. This was owing to LeBron’s innate ability to make everyone around him better.
Between 2009 and 2013, LeBron went on to become, well, LeBron, winning the NBA MVP four times.
