McRoberts' Magic teammates have given him a new nickname which reflects his role in Orlando's offense, a report says.

Josh McRoberts and LeBron James are both NBA players who can man both forward positions. They're both listed at 240 pounds. They're both skilled passers for players of their size and position. The similarities between the two men would seem to end there.

But not if you ask McRoberts' Orlando Magic teammates. Because McRoberts has spent some time initiating the Magic's offense in 2012/13, they've nicknamed him JeBron McJames, reports John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com, in the most important news to come from a Magic shootaround in some time.

James has a signature shoe from Nike, is a three-time Most Valuable Player winner, an NBA champion, an NBA Finals Most Valuable Player winner, an eight-time All-Star, and an eight-time All-NBA selection. He owns career averages of 27.6 points, 7.2 rebounds, 6.9 assists, 1.7 steals, and 0.8 blocks. "McJames" was a McDonald's All-American in 2005, with per-game averages of 4.5 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.4 steals, and 0.5 blocks.
