     Have you ever wondered how Lebron James became one of the best NBA players of all time?

     Lebron James was born on December 30, 1984 at Akron, OH. Lebron James’s mother, Gloria Marie James, was 16 when Lebron was born, and Lebron’s biological dad, Anthony McClelland, left Gloria because he was uninterested in being a parent.

    In 4th grade Lebron moved in with a school coach, Frankie Walker, and his family, while his mother was having trouble finding a home for herself and Lebron. Frankie began to teach Lebron many things about basketball. Lebron struggled in school but found out he had a passion for both basketball and football.

     Lebron went to St. Vincent–St. Mary High School and met Savannah Brinson, his high school sweetheart,and soon to be future wife.

     Lebron joined the NBA at age 20 in 2003 and was the first overall pick. Lebron left the Cavaliers in 2010 for the Miami Heat, and won his first championship in 2012. Then in 2014 Lebron went back to the Cavaliers. Lebron isn’t a perfect person, he has struggled in life just like everyone else had. Even now, when he is famous he is struggling.
