Career

The Cleveland Cavaliers selected LeBron James in the 2003 NBA Draft. He was eventually named Rookie of the Year, finishing with averages of 20.9 points, 5.9 assists, and 5.5 rebounds per game.

At 19, LeBron became the youngest member of the USA basketball squad sent to the Olympics in 2004, but he spent most of his time on the bench.

He made NBA history again in 2005 when he became the youngest player to score more than 50 points in one game. He was selected for the NBA All-Star game for the first time.

With averages of 27.2 points, 7.4 rebounds, 7.2 assists, and 2.2 steal per game, he became the youngest player in NBA history to be named to an All-NBA Team, which he achieved in the 2004–05 season.

In 2006, he helped his team beat the Wizards in the first round of the Playoffs. Against the Pistons in the semifinals, even his average of 26.6 could not secure his team a victory.

After the 2006 Playoffs, LeBron James and the Cavaliers negotiated a three-year, $60 million contract extension with a player option of seeking a new contract as an unrestricted free agent.

The Cavaliers proved to be stronger competitors in 2007, reaching the NBA finals and beating Detroit to win the Eastern Conference. But they lost in the finals against the San Antonio Spurs.

During the 2007-08 season, the Cavaliers improved their standing in the Eastern Conference. The team made it to the semifinals, where the Boston Celtics defeated them in seven games.

The year 2008 was a stellar one for him as he outperformed rival players like Kobe Bryant and Allen Iverson by scoring an average of 30 points per game, the highest average in the NBA regular season.

In 2008, he travelled to Beijing with Bryant, Jason Kidd, and Dwyane Wade as part of the U.S. Olympic Basketball Team and brought home the gold after defeating Spain in the finals.

Shortly after becoming a free agent in 2010, he announced that he would be joining the Miami Heat for the upcoming season. He finished second in the league, scoring 26.7 points per game.

LeBron James competed at his third Olympic Games in 2012, in London, along with teammates Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, and Kobe Bryant, and the team brought home the second consecutive Olympic gold.

At the end of the 2012-13 season, against the San Antonio SpursMiami transformed a seemingly impossible championship win into reality, winning their second consecutive national title with a 3-4 victory.

In 2014, LeBron James opted out of his contract with Miami Heat and signed with Cleveland Cavaliers. In the 2014–15 season, Cleveland Cavaliers advanced to the NBA finals, and in the process, James became the first player since the 1960s to play in five consecutive NBA finals.

Controversies marred his 2015–16 season, including the midseason firing of Cavaliers’ coach David Blatt. Despite all this, LeBron James performed admirably and became the third player to record a triple-double in an NBA Finals Game.

LeBron’s stint with Cleveland Cavaliers ended in 2018, and after that, he signed a contract with the Los Angeles Lakers.

In February 2019, James became the fifth NBA player to reach 32,000 points. On 6 March 2019, in a game against Denver Nuggets, he surpassed Michael Jordan to become the fourth-highest scorer on the NBA list.
