The Final Horne: LeBron James finally won one and just may be a prophet

 

The Final Horne: with James D. HorneClarksville, TN – LeBron James didn’t take steroids.

Come to think of it, I don’t think he’s ever been featured on TMZ, Access Hollywood or Entertainment Tonight for anything scandalous.
