Lebron James Biography

Lebron James born LeBron Raymone James, is an American professional basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association (NBA). James was born on December 30, 1984 in Akron, Ohio.

His mother, Gloria Marie James was only 16-year-old when he was born and she raised him on her own. When James was growing up, life was often a struggle for the family, as they moved from apartment to apartment in the seedier neighborhoods of Akron while Gloria struggled to find steady work. Realizing that he would be better off in a more stable family environment, Gloria allowed James to move in with the family of Frank Walker, a local youth football coach, who introduced James to basketball when he was nine years old.

James played Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) basketball for the Northeast Ohio Shooting Stars as a youth. The team enjoyed success on a local and national level, led by James and his friends Sian Cotton, Dru Joyce III, and Willie McGee. The players were inseparable and dubbed themselves the “Fab Four”, promising each other that they would attend high school together. In a move that stirred local controversy, they chose to attend St. Vincent–St. Mary High School, a predominately white private Catholic school.

Prior to the start of James’ junior year, he appeared in SLAM Magazine and was lauded as possibly “the best high school basketball player in America right now” by writer Ryan Jones. During the season, he appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated, becoming the first high school basketball underclassman to do so.

Throughout his senior year, James and the Fighting Irish traveled around the country to play a number of nationally ranked teams, including a game against Oak Hill Academy that was nationally televised on ESPN2. Time Warner Cable, looking to capitalize on James’ popularity, offered St. Vincent-St. Mary’s games to subscribers on a pay-per-view basis throughout the season.

He participated in three year-end high school basketball all-star games—the EA Sports Roundball Classic, the Jordan Capital Classic, and the McDonald’s All-American Game—losing his National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) eligibility and making it official that he would enter the 2003 NBA draft. Many basketball analysts, scouts, and writers have noted that James left high school as one of the best and most hyped prospects of all-time.

LeBron James injury: Collision with Jayson Tatum affected Cavs superstar, Ty Lue says

Updted: May 16 2018

BOSTON — LeBron James’ momentum in a potentially historic Eastern Conference finals performance was interrupted late in Tuesday’s second quarter when he collided with Celtics rookie Jayson Tatum.

James, whose head met Tatum’s left shoulder on a baseline drive, briefly exited to the locker room before returning with 1:57 remaining in the half.

To that point, James had already racked up 24 points. He started the game on a torrid pace, burying contested 3-pointers as he quieted the TD Garden crowd.

He finished with a 42-point triple-double, but Cavs coach Ty Lue believes James didn’t have the same “punch” after taking the hit.

“It was a tough collision,” Lue said after the Cavs’ 107-94 loss in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals. “He knocked his head sideways. Of course he came back, but when he came back I don’t think he had that same punch that he had before he left, as far as attacking the basket and playing with that force and power we talked about at shootaround. We’ll see how he feels.”

James disagreed with Lue’s assessment.

“I felt like I needed to go back to the locker room, and I did to kind of recalibrate,” James said. “Tough blow. Obviously, (it was) incidental. His shoulder hit me right square in the jaw. Just wanted to go back and make sure everything was fine. But it didn’t affect my game.”

Asked if he was examined for a concussion, James said he was checked for “multiple things.”

“I passed them all,” he said.

Despite James’ brilliance, the Cavs sputtered on offense throughout the second half, often settling for — and missing — long jumpshots. They unraveled defensively in the third quarter. The Celtics swiftly took advantage and ultimately claimed a 2-0 lead in the series.
