In basketball, the intrigue with the physical has always been devoted to the extremes of height - the very tall and the very short - say, Yao Ming at 7 foot 6, or Nate Robinson at 5 foot 9. That makes the fascination with LeBron James' body all the more unusual. In NBA terms, James is, at 6 foot 8, an everyday size. But what he achieves with his body has made him a specimen like no other in the sport. Photo by Doug Pensinger
