Whenever your name is in the record books with King James, you know you accomplished quite the royal feat.
Nassir Little, the No. 6 overall prospect in the Class of 2018 who is headed to North Carolina, scored 24 points and grabbed 6 rebounds to earn co-MVP along with LSU commit Emmitt Williams at the Jordan Brand Classic on Sunday from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Little went 6 for 6 from the free-throw line.
Last month, the 5-star small forward scored 28 points on 12-for-17 shooting to capture the MVP award at the 2018 McDonald’s All-American Game. Little’s point total at the McDonald’s game tied for the third most in the history of the 41-year-old event.
So, just how rare was it for Little to take home the hardware from both events this spring?
Only LeBron James has done it.

These performances definitely will have North Carolina fans amped for when Little begins his career in Chapel Hill.
