It's usually when someone reaches the very top of the mountain that they tend to be in the spotlight, but LeBron James has had it on him for over two decades at this point. Right from high school, the media and the world, in general, have been fascinated by the King and have had their eyes on him at all times.
Despite the constant attention, LeBron has managed to steer clear of any kind of controversy in all this time and has been a role model to follow for many. He has been the center of attention for so long at this point that it has become the norm for him, as when photographers surrounded him for some pictures during the Summer League, James didn't even have a reaction to it.
NBA fans reacted to LeBron being completely unfazed by the situation and wondered how he manages to deal with all this constant attention.

"Can you imagine this from the age of 16? Twenty years of this."
"Can barely see the warms up man😂they could at least make some space"
"No one should be made to get used to this. No one!"
It takes an exceptional individual to be subjected to this kind of attention all the time and not be fazed by it, and LeBron is just that. He has remained perfect when it comes to his off-the-court image, which is remarkable in this day and age.
Many want the money and the fame, but the eyeballs of the world constantly being on you is something no one wants. We are all used to seeing these guys from the perspective of the photographer or the cameraman, but seeing things from LeBron's perspective shows just how difficult and uncomfortable it can be. It is a testament to his greatness as an individual that he has reached where he has, despite going through this for over 20 years.
