Davis says LeBron's intelligence comes from the realization he is always actively looking into the future and what it holds for him and his legacy, which is not the mindset many people have nowadays, no matter which profession they belong to.

LeBron James is the smartest dude you are ever gonna meet in your life, no matter who you meet. LeBron James will be the smartest man you will ever meet because of where he comes from, what he is seeing, and where he sees himself in 5 to 10 years. I always admired LeBron for his infrastructure because Bron did it his way. He did it with his homies.

LeBron's recipe for success is that his closest friends took over a lot of his ventures, and those are the people he had the most confidence in from the start.

They are constantly hunting new business opportunities, and LeBron himself is getting more and more involved in things not solely related to basketball. That is something Baron Davis is exploring right now, and that is why he respects LeBron and considers him one of the smartest people he knows.
