I missed the interview that he did with Larry King, but my friend tells me that LeBron actually admitted that he had posters from Jordan, AI, and Kobe on his wall. Anyone have a link to confirm?

If he said it on national TV, I'm shocked.

Is there anything wrong with that?
If anything I might even finally have some respect for Lebron as a person...

LeBron was in highschool when Kobe was the young gun winnin' rings with Shaq. It makes sense.

That's my point. It shows a level of humility, respect (for the game) and maturity -- and self-confidence as well -- that I previously had not seen in LeBron. At least, not in any of his previous interviews. To be able to acknowledge that sort of thing publicly, even while said player is still in the game, speaks volumes. I think maybe LBJ is not only serious about the direction that he wants his career to take, but he is ready mentally/emotionally to take that next step.
