Nearly 80 years before LeBron James, famed novelist Agatha Christi wrote the following in 1922’s The Secret Adversary: “When I was a boy I heard a famous murder trial. I was deeply impressed by the power and eloquence of the counsel for the defence. For the first time I entertained the idea of taking my talents to that particular market.”not sure if Kob was the first one to do it (i would be surprised if he was) but hella people have done it before bron did it lol. it's a pretty standard thing to do for HSers to do before announcing the college they signed with.
Here's a good article on where the phrase came from and how it was used in different ways in sports before Kobe.
