Cameras have been on this man for more than half his life. It’s like the world has been following Lebron James since his childhood birth, just like Jim Carrey in the movie “The Truman Show” where he has no idea the world has been watching him from a bird’s eye view the entire time.
Same scenario right here in the great NBA player Lebron James. Lets take a closer look at the young sixteen year old’s childhood from the beginning of time.

Nowadays anytime Lebron james gives a motivational speech to students he doesn’t talk about being the #1 overall pick in 2003 NBA draft, winning his first Olympic Gold Medal, his first championship, or signing his over $100 million contract. Of all the things he could talk about, he only talks about the fourth grade. During the fourth grade James moved over a dozen times, missed over 100 days of school and knowing who his father was a mystery to him because his dad was in jail.
Until he met his little to be known mentor Bruce Kelker. In the project housing the James family was living in, Kelker was looking for 8 and 9 year old football players to join his rec team. Kelker ended up taking Lebron in and the rest is history. Kelker was the first reliable male figure Lebron had ever come across.
