Ovechkin and Backstrom Meet Lebron James

Posted April 3, 2009

ovechkinlebron6In case you missed this one, following last night’s Wizards vs. Cavaliers game, two of the Young Guns, Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom had the opportunity to meet Lebron James. D.C. Sports Bog was all over this event with Photos, a transcript, and the video (after the jump). Ted Leonsis was also present, apparently arranged the meeting, and discussed it in a blog post, “Mutual Respect MVP to MVP”. I assume Ted is referring to Lebron’s MVP chances this season, as he has not previously won the award. However losing to the Wizards isn’t going to help his case.
