LeBron James vs. Carmelo Anthony

Cohen’s Analysis: Even though LeBron has accomplished so much more in his professional career – two rings and four MVPs – his rivalry with Carmelo remains a sensational one. They were the two most hyped prospects in high school – James at St. Vincent-St. Mary’s and Anthony at Towson Catholic and Oak Hill Academy – and were the headliners of the 2003 NBA Draft.

While they both created a stir by opting to leave their original NBA teams – LeBron via free agency and Carmelo by way of trade – they remain two of the most popular and entertaining athletes in the world.
