LeBron James was born December 30, 1984 and is a professional basketball player for the Miami Heat. Commonly nicknamed "King James" and "The Chosen One", the Akron, Ohio-born James was highly promoted in the national media as a future NBA superstar while a sophomore at St. Vincent- St. Mary High School, and was named Ohio's "Mr. Basketball" three times. At just 18, he was selected with the number one pick in the 2003 NBA Draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers and signed a US $90 million shoe contract with Nike before his professional debut. Listed as a small forward, James can be seen playing any position on the court and is commonly referred to as a "point-forward." He was named the NBA Rookie of the Year in 2003-04, NBA Most Valuable Player in 2008-09, 2009-10, 2011-12, and 2012-13 and has been both All-NBA and an All-Star every season since 2005.
He has set numerous youngest player records. During the 2003-04 season, he became the first member of the Cavalier franchise and the youngest player (at age 20) to win the NBA Rookie of the Year award and in the following three seasons received All-NBA and All-Star honors. He led the Cavaliers to back-to-back playoff appearances in 2006 and 2007; the latter year the team advanced to the Conference Finals for the first time since 1992 and the NBA Finals for the first time in Cleveland's history.
James played on the 2004, 2008 and 2012 U.S. Olympic basketball teams, winning a team bronze medal and two team golds overall. He has also achieved a number of NBA records, including becoming the youngest player to score 20,000 points at age 28, in January 2013. Throughout his NBA career, LeBron James has been considered one of the best players in the league, and has been compared to basketball great Michael Jordan.
Outside of the NBA, James has worked to help others. He established the LeBron James Family Foundation in 2004, along his mother Gloria, to help out children and single-parent families in need. Among its many programs, the organization builds playgrounds in economically disadvantaged areas and hosts an annual bike-a-thon.
