When We Anoint Our Gods Too Early

Five years ago, this was written about the next LeBron.

I just read an article in Sports Illustrated about the hoopla surrounding the same kid.

And he's already transferred -- because he didn't measure up at a Pac-10 school.

All this compels the question: did SI's hype when the kid was 14 set the kid up for failure -- by creating ridiculously high expectations for him and by perhaps swelling his head and the heads of those around him?
