LeBron James Jr, or Bronny, as his relatives name him in a family circle, is a lucky guy, because his father serves as a role model not just for him, but also for many people worldwide. He is considered as one of the most skilful NBA players worldwide. His career and talent are compared to those ones of Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan. Nowadays many people in the boy’s immediate circle think that he would follow his dad’s pace. By the way, LeBron Sr pace has never been easy.
During his early years LeBron Raymone James Sr. resided in Akron, a small town in Ohio. The baby boy was welcomed in this world just by Gloria Marie James, his mom, who was just about 16 then. She had a kid from an occasional boyfriend Anthony McClelland. They were not even going to get married.
It’s hard to tell, that LeBron had a happy childhood. His mother moved from one town to another, looking for better job and bigger salary. Her son had to change schools too often to find friends or to study well. He saved his lone heart with sports – since the earliest years LeBron was good in football as well as in basketball.
The teenager’s life changed, when he met a coach Frank Walker, who opened the door of his house in front of LeBron. Thus, for the first time he felt what it was like to have a family.
With Frank’s help he made friends with other young talented athletes like Willie McGee and others. They made their school sports a sport sensation.
When James studied in the 8th form, he was the tallest and the most skilful player in his team. Around that time journalists of different sports issues started to write about him. Obviously, the young athlete was going to become a basketball star.
He started to play professionally immediately after graduation from school. Probably, he could start playing professionally even earlier, but NBA age limit stopped him. Cleveland Cavaliers drafted him first. Finally, James could start the way to his dream.
Each new basketball player needs some time to show himself. But James didn’t need it. He finished his first match with perfect results – 25 points, 9 assists and 6 rebounds. He came to win – that was not a secret.
Except for Cavaliers, Bronny’s father played for Miami Heat and Los Angeles Lakers, too. He gained reputation of constantly developing player, who trained hard, almost without vacation, turning his weak points into strong ones.

In fact, James Sr is the star of international level. No wonder that he was romantically connected with numerous beautiful popular women, like an actress Adrienne Bailon and a model Amber Rose. It’s hard to tell now, whether the athlete’s love affairs were real, or just the product of journalists’ imagination. But in any case, he always returned to the main woman in his life and mother of his kids, Savannah Brinson.

But she had never thought about termination of her pregnancy – and that was a right decision! Nowadays her son LeBron Jr is his mother’s support and an upcoming NBA star. Agents of the strongest NBA teams have already set eyes on him. And of course, his father shares with the boy numerous basketball secrets.
