Professional Basketball Player
The undisputed king of the NBA, Lebron James commands a level of respect (both on the court and off) not seen since Michael Jordan. And with good reason. An unstoppable scorer, defender and competitor, “King James” has won three NBA championships, four NBA Most Valuable Player Awards, 13 NBA All-Star selections, and numerous other awards and records. After winning back-to-back titles with the Miami Heat, Lebron returned to his home team the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2014, eventually giving the city its first pro sports championship in over 50 years. But Lebron is more than just a basketball player; he is a global brand icon and arguably the most recognizable athlete in the world. In 2004 he established the LeBron James Family Foundation, which seeks to help out children and single-parent families in need.
