LeBron James Calls James Jones ‘Favorite Player of All Time’

Cleveland Cavaliers teammates LeBron James and James Jones both entered the league in the 2003 draft. James was the first overall pick, and Jones came off the board 48 selections later. Over the 13 seasons that have followed, King James has developed the utmost respect for the role player.

Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com passed along comments from the four-time MVP, who called Jones "my favorite player of all time." The two came into the league together, and as long as James gets his way, they will also go out together.   

"I told J.J. as long as I'm playing, he's going to be around," James said. "He's not allowed to stop playing basketball. So, I'm going to make sure I got a roster spot for him. I love him. He's the greatest teammate I've ever had."

They first became teammates when James arrived in Miami for the 2010-11 season. After four years and a pair of NBA titles, the Ohio native decided he was ready to return home for a chance to bring a championship to Cleveland.

Jones told McMenamin he "was a little heartbroken" when James told him about the decision. But the conversation didn't stop there.
