         The Life of a Legend

Rags to Riches...

Lebron James was born December 30,1984 in Akron, Ohio. When he was born, his mother was just a teenager. In his childhood, he had to constantly keep moving from place to place with his teenage mother, Gloria. As a freshman, he scored an average of 20 points per game.When he was a young child, he played soccer too,but quit since he was much better at basketball and it attracted media attention. Michael Jordan was Lebron James' basketball inspiration. Authors have written books about this incredible athlete because when he was a freshman in high school, there was so much media attention that his games were played on the television. Lebron James wanted to be a baseball player but when he didn't make the school team, he went to his bedroom and cried. Little did he know that another door was soon to open for him.  The NBA was just around the corner. In fourth grade, Lebron missed 82 of 160 school days because his mom made bad choices in her life which resulted in jail time for her and embarrassment for him.
