LeBron James was born on the 30th of December, 1984 in Akron, Ohio, USA. He was raised in a single parent family by his mother Gloria James, with his father playing no role in LeBron's life. James began playing basketball at an early age and was always passionate about the sport. His mother played a large role in keeping the young LeBron focused on his passions and out of trouble.

LeBron James showed his talent for basketball at an early age, being the star performer at his catholic high school, St. Vincent-St. Mary High School's basketball team. The young athlete was dubbed Ohio's "Mr. Basketball", was nicknamed King James, and was on the cover of the popular Sports Illustrated magazine with the headline being "The Chosen One".

The Cleveland Cavaliers NBA basketball team were the first to sign the young LeBron up to play with them, while he was also signing the lucrative $90 million dollar, 7 year contract with Nike. He became the NBA's Rookie of the Year and was credited with getting his team to the NBA playoffs, even though the previous year the Cleveland Cavaliers were one of the worst performers without him.

LeBron James is still a very young player and still has much of his career ahead of him. Experts are predicting that he will go far in basketball, and he continues to prove them right. He has also signed several very lucrative sponsorship deals with major companies like Nike, Bubble Gum, Sprite, and Powerade.

LeBron credits his success to the way his mother Gloria raised him. With his great success and influence, LeBron is working to help the community by giving both time and money to those in need. In an appearance on the Oprah Winfrey talkshow he said "I told myself if I ever made it to the level I want to be at, I'm going to give back".
