James hopes Kane can shake it off

LeBron James is well aware of the pressures of being the face of a franchise -- and then some -- at a young age.

So James, 24, is sympathetic to the situation 20-year-old Patrick Kane is in.

"I wish him the best," James told the Chicago Sun-Times during a stop in the Windy City. "I wish him and his family the best, and hopefully they can get through this tough time."

Specifically on the topic of being front and center at such a young age, the Cleveland Cavaliers star told the newspaper: "It's not difficult at all. You have a responsibility as a professional to be professional all the time, on the court or off the court."

You have to imagine that if King James was in the situation Kane was alleged to have been, he would have simply offered the cabbie his trademark handshake and been on his merry way.
