Often regarded as the best basketball player, LeBron Raymone James Sr. or LeBron James was born on December 30, 1984, in Akron, Ohio. He started playing organized basketball in the fifth grade. His high school freshman year started with playing for St. Vincent-St. Mary varsity basketball team. James was prodigiously talented in more than just basketball. There were many people who believed he could have played in the NFL, but he is now playing in the National Basketball Association (NBA).

His NBA career kick-started when he was picked by his hometown team Cleveland Cavaliers as the first overall pick in the 2003 NBA draft. By the end of the season, he became the first Cavaliers player to win the NBA Rookie of the year award, and it took just one more season for him to earn his first NBA all-star call-up.

In the next few years, he rose as one of the best players in basketball. He ended his contract with the Cavaliers in 2010 and was a superstar by then. As a free agent, Lebron was reported to have been contacted by quite a few teams before he finally signed for Miami Heat.

Four years later, he opted out of his Heat contract and moved back to his hometown team, where he became the first player to play five consecutive finals since the 1960s.

After playing four years for Cavaliers in the second stint, he once again opted out of contract and signed for Los Angleles Lakers in 2018. After the first season at Lakers being disturbed by injuries, the 2019-20 NBA season would be a fresh start for him.
