In the world of sports, some names reign high and define success. One of such names is LeBron James; at the mention of his name, all you think about is basketball. King James is widely considered one of the best basketball players in the world. He was always a tall child and amongst other kids he was the more athletic one so it was only logical for him to go into basketball.
Date of Birth: December 30, 1984
Zodiac Sign: Capricorn
Many people know him as the player who always strives to leave his mark in any team he plays for. There is definitely more to learn about the current Cavaliers player. His personal life is filled with amazing people that are his biggest motivation. He is a husband of one and a father to three kids. King James is an amazing dad and his kids are literally his clone. You’ll find out more about his parents and his current family as you read on. Indeed, he has built an incredible sports brand and a wonderful African American family.
Gloria Marie James (mother)
Date of Birth: February 4, 1968
Zodiac Sign: Aquarius
LeBron is the only child of Gloria and she could not be happier with the kind of son she raised. Mama James got pregnant when she was only sixteen and things became hard from then on. The man who impregnated her left her alone to fend for this new addition. Things were manageable at first as she had her mother to help but when Marie was 19, her own mother died of a heart attack on a Christmas morning. Gloria struggled for a long time to make ends meet and make sure her child had good education. She sent him off one time to live with his football coach but only for a while.
Gloria had a long time boyfriend Eddie Jackson who sort of took on the role of a father to the NBA King. Jackson was rarely present though as he was a drug junkie and spent several years in prison for selling hard drugs and for fraud. In all of these childhood turbulence, Gloria and LeBron maintained a tight-knit relationship.
She is his biggest fan and to him, she is everything. The superstar gives his mum all the credit for all he is and has today. Thinking about what life would have been like without Gloria Marie James is a nightmare for the handsome athletic.
Anthony McClelland (father)
Anthony is the estranged father to the world champion. He left as soon as Gloria was pregnant for him so he never got the opportunity to father his son. LeBron is forever grateful anyways that his father was absent. Things might not have turned out so good is James had been raised in a perfect family with siblings and home pets. The absence of a father figure is what drives the NBA champion to be the devoted father and husband that he is today.
Some sources say that LeBron has a half-brother on his father side – Aaron McClelland.

He not only bears his father’s name, LeBron Jr. is the exact replica of his dad. He is barely a teenager but already shows so much promise; destroying competitions in several highlight mix-tapes. Little Bronny already had college scholarship offers from Duke and Kentucky. Our fingers are crossed and our eyes are watching to see how good he can be.

Zhuri James (daughter with Savannah Brinson)
Date of Birth: October 22, 2014
Zodiac Sign: Libra
She obviously would not be like her brothers as she is the baby of the house. Zhuri’s passions are not visible yet but you don’t need a stargazer to tell you she is a star in the making. We think however that the cute James princess would follow after her hot mum.
