King James

We worry about becoming old because everyone seems to hate talking to a geezer. That is, unless the old dude experienced something awesome. The best we’ve got so far is passing a guy in an airport that looked like Charles Barkley. Probably not going to cut it, eh?

If you share our predicament, than we recommend going to US Airways Center for the game between the Phoenix Suns and the Cleveland Cavaliers. The meeting is a chance for the home team to even the score with Cleveland after the Cavs bested a road-weary Suns team earlier this month. More importantly, it’s a rare opportunity to see forward LeBron James in person. You see, the 24-year old James possesses the sort of transcendent talent that lends an air of historical importance to every game. Forty years from now, you’ll be glad to tell people about the time you saw King James hoop it up.
