Lebron James Biography

Birthdate: December 30, 1984
Birthplace: Akron, Ohio


He's the NBA's biggest star and most-talented player. Kidzworld serves up the goods on Lebron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers.


Lebron James - Growing Up

Lebron started hooping when he was just a baby, after his mom bought him a miniature hoop and basketball. It was a good choice considering he had sprouted up to 6'7" by the time he was a sophomore in high school. As a junior, Sports Illustrated put him on the cover of their magazine and called him "The Chosen One." After his junior year, Lebron James was offered a nine million dollar contract to play basketball in Italy and he would've been a top pick in the 2002 NBA draft if league rules had allowed it (a player must be 18 years old to be picked). His high school games were shown on television, he was on the cover of basketball magazines and shoe companies were lining up to get Lebron's name on a multi-million dollar endorsement contract.

Lebron James - The Professional

In 2003, Lebron James was drafted first overall in the NBA Draft by his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers. Overnight he became a very wealthy teenager - signing several endorsement deals totaling nearly $100 million! In his rookie year, Lebron James averaged nearly 21 points per game and was named the NBA's Rookie Of the Year, edging out Carmelo Anthony of the Denver Nuggets. Lebron has lived up to the hype - in his four years with the Cavs, he has been a three time All-Star and has also helped turn the team from cellar dwellers into playoff contenders. In 2007, Lebron led the Cavs to the NBA Finals, where they were swept by the San Antonio Spurs.


Lebron James - Greatest Ever?

Lebron may be more physically gifted and talented than Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and Magic Johnson, but can he the best ever? It took MJ six years to reach a championship game, but he ended up winning six championships in his career. Magic has five championships while Larry Bird and Kobe Bryant each have three. Lebron is only 25 years old, so he has a lot of time to win rings. The best players are winners, so if Lebron fails to win championships he will be considered one of the best players - but not the best. With a finals appearance in just his fourth NBA year, things are looking good for King James!

It's definitely an American thing - here in Australia we have like no Cheerleaders or Cheerleading groups. I think it's a sport but I'm not really into it. I think any girls or boys can do it. :3

Sure, many girls can fight, in fact some can fight really well, however it is a fact that women are generally physically weaker than men, which means that if a healthy male and a healthy female were to fight then the outcome wouldn't be 50/50 but rather 25/75 if even that much, this assumes that both the male and female have the same experience, training and of course both are healthy. This doesn't mean that women are inferior to men, but I am just pointing out facts, the notion that men and women are exactly the same and should be carrying out the same tasks is ridiculous.
