LeBron Raymone James Sr. was born on December 30, 1984, in Akron, Ohio. He was the first pick in the 2003 draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers with an incredible High School Senior year. James is currently playing for the Los Angeles Lakers in his 21st NBA season. Nicknamed "King James", he is considered one of the greatest players of all time and is often compared to Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant in debates for the greatest basketball player ever.

The 38-year-old spent the first seven years in Cleveland and took the team to the 2007 NBA Finals. Three years later, he made a massive decision to move to the Miami Heat in 2010. With his move to South Beach, James teamed up with Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh and form a super team. The trio then went on to win two back-to-back championships between 2011–2013. 

A year later, he moved back to his home team, Cleveland Cavaliers, and won the 2016 Championship. The Cavs were down 3-1 when LeBron James carried his team to register a 4-3 series victory. James’ second stint at Cleveland lasted for three years where he made the finals all three years but won just once.

In the 2018-19 season, LeBron James left Cleveland to join the Lakers. The first season in LA didn’t pan out well but immediately next year he led the Lake Show to the 2019-20 NBA Championship.
