LeBron James is a professional basketball player widely regarded as one of the greatest players in the history of the sport. Born on December 30, 1984, in Akron, Ohio, LeBron James grew up playing basketball and quickly established himself as a prodigious talent. After a standout high school career, he was selected first overall in the 2003 NBA Draft by his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers.
Since then, LeBron James has become one of the most dominant players in the NBA, earning four Most Valuable Player Awards and leading his teams to four NBA championships. He has also been selected to the All-Star team 17 times and has been named to the All-NBA First Team 13 times. He has established himself as one of the greatest scorers and playmakers in NBA history, with career averages of 27.1 points, 7.4 assists, and 7.4 rebounds per game.
LeBron James is also known for his philanthropic work and his activism. Through his LeBron James Family Foundation, he has invested millions of dollars in education and youth development programs, including the establishment of the I Promise School in Akron, Ohio, which serves at-risk children and their families. He has also been an outspoken advocate for social and political issues, using his platform to raise awareness about issues such as racial inequality, police brutality, and voter suppression.
Off the court, LeBron James has become a global icon, with a massive following and a wide range of endorsement deals with companies such as Nike, Coca-Cola, and Beats by Dre. He has also become a successful entrepreneur, with ventures in media, technology, and sports. In 2020, he became a part owner of the Boston Red Sox, making him one of the few African American owners in Major League Baseball.
The four-time NBA champion, four-time league MVP, and 19-time All-Star is officially the NBA’s highest ever scorer after passing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s points record in February 2023.

LeBron has made $432 million during his 20-year NBA career. He also signed a two-year, $97 million extension with the Lakers, that will give him $141 million over the next three years.
