LeBron James has been named an All-Star every season he’s been in the NBA, except for his rookie year in 2004. Despite not getting the nod, James was still able to be a part of All-Star Weekend that year, competing in the Rookie-Sophomore Game. LeBron recently reminisced on the memorable experience in LA after Sunday’s win vs Golden State.

(Via Los Angeles Lakers):

“That was an incredible moment for myself, for my family to be here. Obviously, I wanted to be in the All-Star Game, still kind of irks me a little bit, but I got over it.”
