Default Warriors Challenge LeBron to Full-Court Shot Contest

Casey Weber's legend just keeps growing.

The Dayton Christian High School senior guard who nailed a 90-foot shot against Arcanum and followed it with an 80-foot swish in practice three days later has attracted the interest of sports television giant ESPN.

Now Weber and his teammates are attempting to pique the curiosity and draw the attention of Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James.

Weber's double dose of magic was shown on ESPN's "SportsCenter" late Tuesday night, March 10. The Warriors squad also was filmed issuing a challenge.

"Hey, LeBron, anytime, anyplace," the team said in unison.

ESPN sent Cincinnati-based reporter Bob Holtzman and a videographer to Dayton Christian's practice on Wednesday for a feature story that will air Sunday. The Warriors face Versailles in a Division III district final at 5:30 p.m. today at UD Arena.

"It's been great," DC coach Chip James said about the national attention generated by Weber's long shot. "The kids absolutely love it. They can't believe they're seeing their best friend and actually seeing themselves on "SportsCenter," which is everybody's favorite show on our team.

"But at the same time, it's been a little bit of a challenge because we've got our biggest game of the year yet coming up (today). We want to make sure our focus is on Versailles and not ESPN."

LeBron James made a full-court shot in practice during the 2007 NBA playoffs, and also banked in an 80-footer against the Boston Celtics.

"ESPN has used LeBron's highlights like crazy for their playoff stuff," DC's coach said. "So basically, we're saying, 'Hey, you want to challenge Casey to a full-court shooting contest? We'll do it up there (Cleveland). We'll do it down here (Dayton). We'll do it anywhere you want.' "

The challenge?

"If LeBron makes one before Casey, we'll buy LeBron lunch at Chipotle," Chip James said. "And if Casey makes it before LeBron does, LeBron has to buy us a Chipotle the entire restaurant and we can eat there anytime we want. That's the equivalent, wallet-wise: We'll buy him a burrito or he can buy us the entire Chipotle and we can have it to ourselves."

Full-Couty shot contest over burritos! Sounds fun
