LeBron James is one of the greatest basketball players of all time. He is from Akron, Ohio and was famously raised by his single mother Gloria James. Gloria James gave birth to LeBron at the age of 16 years old. There are three people linked to LeBron that could be his father. That was the same year LeBron was born in December. He said he met Gloria at a bar called DC Space.
James speaks about his father
Just a kid from Akron
The year-old, ten-years strong, power forward and recently married dad of two spoke about his life and being raised in a single-parent household with just his mom at the helm. McClelland allegedly turned to a life of crimes such as arson and theft and James has never had any contact with his biological dad whatsoever. James, whose life was difficult moving from place to place with his mom as she struggled to make a paltry living, credits her for always keeping him by her side. The larger-than-life player said that not once did he ever feel unloved or unimportant by his mom. In the Instagram excerpt, the text lays over a photo of James in uniform before a game. James never explains why he posted the penetrating words on his Instagram account but perhaps he was motivated by children, who feel cast aside or downtrodden, so they could gain some flicker of hope that dreams can very well come true.

Who is LeBron’s supposed brother?
LeBron James has spent almost half his life as one of the most famous athletes in the world. But he did not always have it easy. Growing up with a single mother and almost no relationship with his father, the NBA star was bitter about his situation. James was born when his mother, Gloria, was in high school. Not much is known about his father, other than the fact that he was not there for James growing up.
Born to a single mother and raised without a father figure in his life, James has used this to help forge a strong relationship with his own kids. With rumors that James might have a half-brother in the mix, however, some are wondering if James will extend an olive branch to a potential sibling. Since before he was in the NBA, there have been several rumors regarding his father, but most believe that it is a man named Anthony McClelland. To add insult to injury, James has never met his father and has spoken at great length about how bitter this made him growing up.
