LeBron James

LeBron James, Los Angeles all-star forward has been the face of the NBA for the majority of his career. LeBron has been under the spotlight since was playing for his high school team St.Vincent – St.Mary in his hometown of Akron, Ohio.  The Fighting Irish were considered as the best high school basketball team in the U.S.A. LeBron then entered the 2003 NBA draft and was the number 1 pick. He made his NBA debut for his hometown team the Cleveland Cavaliers.

His debut NBA game against the Sacramento Kings. He scored 25 points which were the most number of points by a player straight from high school on debut. Lebron went on to become the Rookie of the year. The rise of his dominance over the league started from the 2004 season as he made his first all-star appearance.

Four years later he won his first MVP trophy and also was second in the defensive player of the year rankings. But in 2010  after several playoff disappointments, he made his infamous decision to leave Cleveland and join the Miami Heat. 2010-11 was a loss but won back-to-back championships between 2011 and 2013. He later returned to the Cavaliers as he wanted to bring a championship for his hometown team. He fulfilled this promise in unprecedented fashion coming back from a 3-1 deficit in the 2015-16 finals against the Warriors.

LeBron James left Cleveland for the second time in the 2018-19 season and joined the Lakers in quest of winning one more ring. He has had a very disappointing first season with Lakers as his streak of being in the finals for eight straight seasons was broken. He has started the 2019-20 season with a bang as the Lakers acquired Anthony Davis.
