Here are some notes from the LeBron James Skills Academy.

Mudiay will have his day

I sat down with sophomore Emmanuel Mudiay (Arlington, Texas/Grace Prep) in the media room and after talking to him for a few minutes, I had to ask him how old he was. Mudiay speaks exceptionally well, is insightful and engaging. He's seems way older than 15 (he just turned 15 too). He was born in Congo, dabbles in French and speaks with a 100 percent American accent. His mother is a registered nurse and his father died when he was four years old and mom packed up for the United States.
