Caris LeVert Reveals His ‘Welcome To The NBA’ Moment


Caris LeVert has been turning heads in the NBA for a while now, and is one of the most talented young players in the league. He’s even drawn Penny Hardaway comparison by some of the NBA’s biggest names.

But since everybody has to start somewhere, it comes at no surprise that LeVert also had a ‘welcome to the NBA’ moment. LeVert revealed how he was playing against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, when it suddenly struck him that he was part of the league and how big of a deal it was.


Just playing against him [LeBron] and guarding him for the first time. Seeing him in like real life, I hadn’t really seen him before…

I’m from Ohio so a lot of my people are huge LeBron fans. So, everybody was tuned into that game… That was the point in time I’m like, ‘Damn I’m really in the NBA right now. I’m really playing against LeBron, I’m playing against Cans right now. This is crazy.’”
