Most people only know LeBron James as an NBA star - the youngest MVP in the history of the league. But LeBron actually had a pretty tough time growing up; he was raised by a single-mom who at times could barely keep a roof over her family’s heads.

Most people only know LeBron James as an amazing basketball player who went straight from high school to the NBA, where he was named the youngest MVP in the history of the league in 2009. But did you know LeBron actually had a pretty tough time growing up? He was raised by a single-mom who at times could barely keep a roof over her family’s heads.


LeBron James

Between the ages of 5 and 8 LeBron moved about 12 times, living in some of the worst projects around Akron, Ohio. Luckily, his mom, Gloria, let him stay with his basketball coach's family until she was able to give him a stable home situation.


In his early days of playing ball, before the NBA, LeBron always had the same four friends as teammates: Dru Joyce III, Romeo Travis, Willie McGee and Sian Cotton. The five were coached by Dru's dad who drove it into the boys that basketball was "more than a game" – it was something the kids could use to get from Point A to Point B in their lives.


The Fab Five

This new movie - More Than A Game – is about LeBron and his four friends/teammates. While the Fab Five – as they were known – had lots of success on the court, the film also focuses on their achievements away from the basketball. And even though LeBron was obviously the star of the team, the movie takes a close look at all five teammates, all of whom had their own struggles and faced their own obstacles along the way.
