Article Body:
Born on December 30, 1984, LeBron James is an Ohio native who graduated
from St. Vincent-St. Mary High School. Standing 6'8" and weighing 240
lbs., James has enjoyed a number of career highlights since joining the
NBA. Among his recognitions, LeBron James was named the 2003-2004 NBA
Rookie of the Year, which made him the first Cavalier and youngest player
to ever receive this award. In addition, he is one of only three rookies
in the history of the NBA to average a minimum of 20 points, five
rebounds and five assists in one season.

During his high school career, LeBron James led St. Vincent-St. Mary to
three state championships in only four seasons. It came as no surprised
when LeBron gave up his high school football career to concentrate on
basketball. His football career was successful, however, as he was named
First Team All-State as a wide receiver during his sophomore season and
his team progressed to the state semifinals during his junior year.

In 2003, LeBron James was chosen in the first round of the NBA Draft by
the Cleveland Cavaliers. He was the first pick overall and has remained
with the team that first introduced him into the NBA. During his rookies
season, James started in 79 games and went on to become the youngest
player to score 1,000 points in NBA history.

In 2004, LeBron James continued his love of basketball as he became a
member of the 2004 United States Olympic Team, which went on to win the
Bronze Medal. During the eight games that were played during the
competition, LeBron averaged 5.4 points, 1 rebound and 1.6 assists.

During the 2004-2005 NBA season, LeBron James started in 80 games and was
named All-NBA Second Team, which earned him the honor of being the
youngest player in league history to be given All-NBA honors. His
record-breaking streak continued as he surpassed the franchise record for
points in a single season, became the youngest and second-fastest player
to reach career numbers and became the second All-Star starter in
Cavalier history.
As most athletes will tell you, it takes a lot of drive and determination
to succeed in any sport. In order to effectively attain their goals,
most athletes look up to a role model for guidance and encouragement
during both the good and bad times. For LeBron James, that man is
Michael Jordan. Admittedly, James chose number 23 in honor of his role
model. In addition to sharing talent and greatness, some athletes also
share the same birthday. LeBron James and Tiger Woods share a December
30 birth date, which is just another sign that James is destined for
greatness.
