Lebron James Top 50 Most Inspiring Quotes

LeBron Raymone James Sr., widely known as LeBron, is an American NBA player, currently playing for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association (NBA). Born December 30, 1984, LeBron James has been given the monicker “King” ever since he became a professional basketball player. Born and raised in Akron, Cleveland, Ohio, the King spent his early professional basketball years playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers. With that team, he was able to take his team and play for an NBA Basketball championship, eventually losing to the team they were up against. Because of this initial setback, LeBron decided that he wanted to be with other basketball players in a team where he could win championship trophies. This led him to join the Miami Heat basketball team where he did win two championships. At that time, LeBron was famous for saying, “I am going to take my talents to South Beach and join the Miami Heat.” People were not so happy with this pronouncement; however, it was one of the best decisions in LeBron’s stellar career as he did win championships.

Still, wanting to give back to the city he grew up in, LeBron rejoined the Cleveland Cavaliers where he did win one championship for his city. After his stint with the Cavaliers, James joined the Los Angeles Lakers, the team he is currently playing for. With another famous basketball player as his partner, Anthony Davis, LeBron James would win a championship with the Lakers in 2020. These days, LeBron James is famous for being in the news as he is known for speaking his mind on things that involve African-Americans and some of the injustices that have come to public attention, and supports many good causes through the charities he runs alongside his wife, Savannah James. A supporter of the youth, King James put up his own school in Cleveland where people have been awed by his works and charitable deeds. LeBron James is also famous for being the star in the sequel of “Space Jam” that had the iconic basketball superstar Michael Jordan in the first sequel. A class act, an inspiring athlete and a successful business name since LeBron has been with the sportswear brand Nike for a long time now; LeBron James will always be one of the most talked about athletes in the planet.
