LeBron James, nicknamed "King James", is a forward in the National Basketball Association. He was the scoring champion of the 2007-08 season, a 4-time NBA MVP, and a three-time NBA champion with the Miami Heat (twice) and the Cleveland Cavaliers (once). Until July 2010, James played for the Cleveland Cavaliers after being drafted by them in 2003. As a 2010 Free Agent, LeBron James signed a contract with the Miami Heat. James has made the NBA All-Star Team every year of his professional career.
LeBron showed his tremendous character in 2014 by returning from Miami to play again for Cleveland, despite all the nasty things said about him when he left four years earlier. Pro-family and pro-community, LeBron said that he wanted to bring a championship to Cleveland, which has not had one in a major sport in a half-century.
James accomplished his goal in his second season after returning to Cleveland, leading the Cavaliers to a championship in the NBA Finals by upsetting the Golden State Warriors, who set a record for wins (73) during the regular season.
