James was an All-Star caliber player right off the bat, as he demonstrated right in his first game of the 2003-04 season with 25 points. His second season saw him improve across the board, as he upped his averages in scoring from 20.9 to 27.2, rebounding from 5.5 to 7.2 and assists from 5.9 to 7.2. His shooting percentage also shot up substantially from 41.7% in his rookie season to 47.2%.

He also averaged a career-best 2.2 steals per game that same season. The season culminated in failure to make the playoffs, but LeBron James' greatness did not go unnoticed as he made his first All-Star game appearance, and was named to the All-NBA Second Team that same season as well.

James also finished 6th in MVP voting that same season, accumulating 93 points (although he did not get a first-place vote).
