FC: LeBron James

1: LeBron went from a poor child who's mom struggled to make ends meet to a high school basket ball phenomenon who was drafted into the NBA right out of high school and is now know as one of the greatest basket ball players since Michel Jordon.

2: LeBron James was born on December 30, 1984 and lived in Akron Ohio. LeBrons mother was Gloria James and was only 16 when she gave birth to LeBron. LeBrons father was Anthony McClelland, who was in and out of trouble with the police and wanted nothing to do with being a father and left Gloria to take care of LeBron by her self this is why leBron decided to keep his moms last name instead of his dads

3: team roster | Amelia Bankes | Cooper Swanson | Michah Rooney | Caleb Jones | Catrice Rodney-Mullen | Blake Michaels | Mischa Lovett | Jennifer Clover | #1 | #3 | #7 | #8 | #11 | #19 | #22 | #31

4: Life was hard for leBron and his mom. They would go from town to town do to the fact that Gloria could not land a steady job, but even though Gloria could not land a steady job she tried to be a good mother and keep LeBron away from the violence of the street. When leBron was two Gloria began dating Eddie Jackson a man in and out of trouble, but Gloria liked having a male role muddle around for leBron to look up to.When leBron was only a infant his His mom gave him a . miniature hoop and ball when ..... he was an infant, and he would .. amused himself for hours each day with the toy. LeBron also had the genes necessary to spawn a long-limbed basketball star.

5: Embarrassed of his home life LeLron found it hard to make friend and because he and his mom move so frequent he could not get comfortable. Lebron also found it hard to focus on his studies and struggled in school, but found a outlet in sports like football and basketball

6: h Soon after LeBrons Pee-Wee football season was over his coach Frankie Walker herd that leBron had dropped out of school. Frankie went to talk to Gloria about why he dropped out after talking they decided that LeBron needed a stable home. So Frankie agreed to take care of LeBron until Gloria could settle down, and get a stable job. LeBron live with the Walkers for about a year and spent most of his summers with Dru. One his closer friends. LeBron, Dru and the three Walker boys made a fine basketball team. He Sian Cotton, Willie McGee, Dru Joyce, and Romeo Travis. The five of them made a outstanding basketball team. When the choice of what high school to go to LeBron, Joyce, Cotton and McGee known as the "Fab Four" had decided to go to Saint Vincent-Saint Mary High School, a parochial school in downtown Akron. Best known for its tradition of academic excellence, but soon to be known for its football and it basket ball team with LeBron or now called "The chosen" leading the way.


8: LeBron started his freshman playing for the SVSM football team as a wide receiver, and then easily started on the basketball team scoring 15 point his first game against Cuyahoga Falls. He and his cousin lead the team to a 27-0 season. LeBron avenging about 20 points per game and shot over 50 percent from the field and was leading the team in steals, assist, and rebound. The year after LeBrons freshman year he had a 4 inch growth sprout going from 6-3 to 6-7. The first game played in LeBrons sophomore brought more than 5,000 people to watch and word was that scouts were already looking at him.

9: In LeBron's junior year he got in trouble when his mom who still did not have that great of a job got a 50 thousand dollar lone and bought LeBron a Hummer H2 for his 18 Birth day. He found himself in trouble again when he accepted two retro NBA jerseys worth 845$. While all this was going on and the Ohio high school Athletic Association was considering suspending the media was giving LeBron more attention than he could have thought of have imagined. this fame making it were people who did not know his name did and people that weren't interested in high school basketball became interested. Then by LeBron's senior the SVSMs were getting a crowd of over 18 thousand.LeBron leading them to a 24-1 season. Now by this time he was being highly recruited by the Cavaliers, and after he was finished in high school they drafted him .

10: In LeBrons first season with the Cavaliers he lead them to a 35-47 season which was a great improvement form the season they had the year before. LeBron averaging over 20 points per game, and did even better as the years progressed. Then in 2008 LeBron played in the Olympics with Kobe the team being called the "Redeem team". Then in the 2009-2010 season LeBron choked in the play off. Causing lots criticized and for the Caviler's was enough not to resign LeBron for the next season. The Miami Heat jumped on the opportunity and signed him almost imminently. LeBron lead the team in assists and logged seven double-digit games. They ended third in their division. Then in the 2011-2012 season LeBron did just as well and lead the Heat to a Championship win against The Oklahoma City Thunder. That same year he played in the Olympics and lead the team to win gold medle

11: LeBron now lives in a city close to Akron but is looking to buy a house some where in Florida. He has 2 young boys named LeBron James Jr., who was born on October 6, 2004 and his second, Bryce Maximus James, born on June 14, 2007. LeBron along with Gloria have founded a organization called LeBron James family foundation. This organization helps children and single parent families.

12: The reason I chose LeBron James was because i like the Heat and he is my favorite player on the team.
