LeBRON JAMES-KING OF THE COURT Young Adult Biography ::::The “LeBron James–King of the Court, Companion Study Guide” is also available. ::::ABOUT THE BOOK “His path was laden with possibilities and pitfalls, cheers and criticism, laughter and lamenting.but he arrived at his destination-the NBA-fortified by a solid personal code of honor and academic achievement.” -From the Foreword by Nancy Gilliam and M. LaVora Perry ::::Within LeBron James’ story are lessons that echo from the years when he and his mother struggled to survive and endure hard choices. These lessons deepened when LeBron’s unique basketball skills became apparent, drawing national media attention to him and the small Catholic high school he attended. As he conquered the high school arena and set his sights on the pros, LeBron faced his share of naysayers and skeptics, but he silenced all doubters with his stellar rookie performance during his first NBA season as a multi-million dollar draft pick for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Through it all, LeBron stayed true to himself. Despite phenomenal wealth and fame, the lessons he learned as a young player will hopefully always remain with him, keeping him focused and grounded on his way to perhaps becoming one of the best-and classiest-athletes to ever play the game. ::::ENDORSEMENTS “Robinson.ably demonstrates how other[s].can take lessons from LeBron James’ story and apply them to their own lives-whether it’s realizing the importance of doing well in school or the challenge of working hard to be the best at whatever one wants to achieve or learning to appreciate the enduring value of family and friends.” -Larry E.

ISBN :

Description : LeBron James is simultaneously on the cutting edge of basketball greatness and as a cultural icon. Through the international exposure of the National Basketball Association and its televised games in more than 100 countries, and as a global marketing presence, the star of the Cleveland Cavaliers is rapidly becoming one of the world's most familiar faces. This biography traces the key events in the life of LeBron James during his dizzying rise to fame in high school to his emergence as the first overall pick in the NBA draft as an 18-year-old, to his carrying the underdog Cavaliers to the 2007 NBA Finals. Hyped relentlessly from the time he was a high school sophomore in Ohio, James has lived up to all advance billing and with his charm, smile, and extraordinary basketball skills. James' all-around talent and unselfishness on the court are the trademarks of his play that have made him one of the most feared scorers in the league, but also one of its most versatile rebounders and passers. This biography offers a well-rounded portrait James from the difficulties encountered being raised by a single mother and overcoming poverty, which at times caused the family to move from home to home. Lew Freedman of the Chicago Tribune chronicles the milestones in the life of LeBron James during his dizzying rise to fame. Also highlighted are James' remarkable endorsement deals, particularly his $90 million deal with Nike. The volume is rounded out with a timeline and a bibliography of print and electronic sources to provide suggested readings for students and sports fans alike....
