LeBron James is an NBA basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Born to an unwed mother, James was raised by her and a succession of her boyfriends, many of whom had criminal records. The identity of James's father has always been a mystery. The Akron Beacon Journal has reported that he is dead. A neighborhood couple befriended the boy, and taught him basketball, which his showed an great talent. Although he is primarily a shooting guard, he is also capable of playing point guard and small forward.
James first captured attention following a solid first year for the Division III St. Vincent-St. Mary High School 2000 State Championship team. He averaged 25 points, seven rebounds, five assists, and four steals as a sophomore as St. Vincent-St. Mary won another state title. He was named Ohio's "Mr. Basketball" and USA Today selected him for the All-USA First Team, making him the first sophomore to be honored with such a nomination. He added to his resume by being first-team all state in high school football. In James's junior year, he averaged 29 points and eight rebounds and was once again named Mr. Basketball and a spot on the All-USA First Team. He also began using the nickname "King" James.
