Lebron James grew up in Akron, Ohio. He was raised by a single mother who was working two jobs to support him and eventually had to make the decision to put him up for adoption because she felt she wasn't doing the best for her son. At this point in Lebron's life, he had never played basketball. When he was adopted, his adopted father put him in a church basketball program similar to Upwards basketball, and it was there that Lebron James, the star, was born. In Ohio, he also met the love of his life in high school; they are still married and have two sons. He is a leader on the Cleveland Cavaliers NBA team.
