Lebron after a game with his prostitute, Shaleekwah

LeBron James is surprisingly a family guy with two children with his wife, Savannah Brinson . ‘The first, LeBron James Jr., was born on October 6, 2004. The second, Bryce Maximus James, was born on June 14, 2007.’(Wikipedia) Most don’t know but LeBron had a career pulling out for him in football making First Team-All State as a wide receiver, his sophomore year. His junior year he helped lead St. Vincent - St. Mary High School to the state semifinals in football. When LeBron was a freshman he played basketball wearing the jersey number 32 before he changed for good to number 23 because of his role model Michael Jordan.

‘Despite being compared to players such as Michael Jordan, Oscar Robertson, and Magic Johnson, James compared himself to a young Penny Hardaway. He stated, "Penny sees the whole floor and can score," James said. "He's still one of my favorite players of all-time."’(Wikipedia)

LeBron has a chance to become the first billionaire athlete and international icon. ‘He has a number of endorsement contracts with Nike, Sprite, PowerAde, Bubblicious, and Upper Deck.’(Wikipedia) He is already a very popular name out in the world and I wouldn’t be surprised if he meets his goals soon, since he is such an upcoming star.

In the 2007 season LeBron finally made it to the playoff with his one and only team the Cleveland Cavaliers, this was his first appearance in the playoffs.

‘On July 11, 2007, James, along with comedian Jimmy Kimmel, hosted the 2007 ESPY Awards . The show aired on July 15, 2007. LeBron was nominated for three ESPYs; his nominations were for Best Male Athlete, Best NBA Player (winner), and for Best Record Breaking Performance. The Record Breaking performance was when he scored 48 points in Game 5 of the 2007 NBA Eastern Conference Finals against the Detroit Pistons, including 29 of the last 30 points and all of the teams 25 points in overtime. In other comedic pursuits, James hosted the 33rd season premiere of Saturday Night Live. Creator Lorne Michaels along numerous cast members praised him for his versatility. LeBron joined the ranks of other NBA hosts including Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley who also hosted the premiere episodes.’(Wikipedia)

LeBron over the course of his short career has already a series with NIKE and he has five shoes to his collection. He also with NIKE has a commercial series “The LeBron’s.” He is definitely among all the stars of Hollywood, as a basketball player. LeBron featured on the cover of Vogue magazine with Gisele Bundchen this year that is definitely a huge milestone in the young basketball player’s life. LeBron isn’t only a basketball player he’s a public figure, an icon, a model, and a family guy.
