    The King


    LeBron James, also known as The King, is one of the best basketball players of all time. He never fails to put up phenomenal numbers game after game.

    He is one of the first players to average at least twenty-five points, six rebounds, and six assists for his career. He is one of four players with at least four NBA MVP’S. He has played in seven straight Finals. He was drafted straight out of high school from St. Vincent-St. Mary High School. He is from Akron, Ohio and has been playing in the NBA for fifteen years. He is currently in his fifteenth season trying to win another championship in Cleveland.

    LeBron was drafted to the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2003 at the age of eighteen. He was in Cleveland up until 2010. He made a decision that made the entire city of Cleveland hate him. He decided to leave the Cavaliers in 2010 to go to the Miami Heat and play with Dwayne Wade. He was there for four years and won three championship titles. He then decided to leave Miami and return home in 2014.

    He made a promise to the city of Cleveland, and that was to win a championship in his hometown. His first year back, he was blown out in the finals against the Golden State Warriors. The following year, he won the championship and managed to win the MVP title.

    He is currently in Cleveland and still dominating in his fifteenth season, which is almost unheard of. We are not sure what is going to happen during the off-season, whether he will leave Cleveland or stay, but regardless, he is still having an amazing year this season and is still averaging 27.5 points per game, 8.6 rebounds, and 9.1 assists per game.
