A look at LeBron James' career

AKRON, Ohio - LeBron James made a name for himself when he played at St. Vincent/St. Mary High School.

It was in February of his junior year that he exploded when he appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated, with the now-famous title 'The Chosen One.' As LeBron and the Fighting Irish fan base grew, NBA players like Ron Harper and Shaquille O'Neal attended games.

It was in May of 2003, when the Cleveland Cavaliers learned they would get the first pick in the NBA draft, that LeBron knew he would be playing for his hometown team.

As a Cavs player, LeBron won the Rookie of the Year Award, lead the team to an NBA Finals and was a two-time league MVP.

In 2010 LeBron became a free agent and went on national television and announced his decision. He was taking his talents to South Beach and joining the Miami Heat.

While in Miami where LeBron won two NBA Championships and two more NBA MVP Awards.

LeBron is now a free agent again and Cavs fans hope history repeats itself and LeBron decides to wear the wine and gold jersey again. Except this time they hope he leads the Cavs to an NBA Championship right here in Northeast Ohio.
