The Washington Redskins' rookie quarterback was courtside Tuesday night to see the struggling Wizards stun James and the visiting Miami Heat 105-101. One night earlier, it was James who watched Griffin upset the New York Giants in grand fashion on "Monday Night Football."
"He's an unbelievable talent, and he's a great quarterback," James told USA Today. "He doesn't play like a rookie at all. They've got a great one."
RG3 has shredded the NFC East over the past month, and opponents haven't found a way to neutralize Griffin's gifts. That might take a while. Like James, RG3 shows promise of redefining the position he plays, and those are the rarest of athletes.
