Just A Kid From Akron

Last night, Lebron James made history and became the best scorer in basketball history; a title that will solidify his name in history. However, this man is more than just a basketball player. He is a huge contributor to the less privileged, a loving father, an inspiration and even a fashion icon.

James opened a school for the less privileged in his hometown called the I Promise School. His rough upbringings allow him to relate to those who also struggle in their youth. Therefore, he felt the need to put what he has earned back into the community; something a lot of famous basketball players fail to do.

As a form of self expression, Lebron has made himself a fashion icon. Pulling off pieces such as suit shorts, colorful sweaters, interesting hat choices, and impecable footwear. Just as he expresses his own unique gameplay on the court, he expresses his personality and emotions with his clothing, pushing the fashion limits.

But above all else, Lebron is a family man. With a wife and three children by his side throughout his career, there have been many occasions where Lebron showed that even being the best basketball player requires humility and selflessness. Currently, James spends his time off the court with his two sons, Bronny and Bryce, and his daughter Zhuri. He loves watching the boys play basketball and being a girl dad to his one and only daughter.
