Player's coach, teammates challenge James
DAYTON, Ohio -- An Ohio high school basketball player is so good at making long-distance shots that his coach and teammates are challenging LeBron James to a contest.
Casey Weber of Dayton Christian High School sank a 90-footer during a game last week. He was taped by a television station a few days later swishing an 80-footer in practice.
The shots were broadcast on ESPN's "SportsCenter," which sent a crew to Dayton for a feature story airing Sunday.
On camera, Weber's team issued a challenge to James, telling the Cleveland Cavaliers star in unison: "Hey, LeBron, anytime, anyplace!"
The players say if Weber scores the first full-court shot, James would have to buy the team a burrito restaurant, according to the Dayton Daily News.
