    Duncan, I have to argue with you on one point, I don’t argue your rooting for greatness, but rather, you made the statement that you don’t root for the underdog. I respectfully disagree with you with evidence. Being an underdog myself, I’ve always appreciated the support you’ve shown me 🙂 Thank you for sharing this article.

    • Good point Gael. I still do root for the underdog. I will add in an editor’s note. Thanks!

    Duncan, I love this article. As a teacher I see every day how impressionable kids in the 15 and under age range are. It is amazing that Lebron and Rupp didn’t swell to egotistic nightmares given the praise they were given at such early ages. Props to them for finding success through utilizing there great talents.

    Thought I’d re-blog this post from a year ago. Congratulations for Lebron James and the Miami Heat. He’s lived up to the hype that has surrounded him. Also last night – Galen Rupp won his 5th consecutive National Championship in the 10km on the track. Congratulations to him for living up to the hype. Watching greatness is inspiring.
