Raised by a single mother, the family’s financial situation was not a stable one. Being a single teen mom, his mother struggled to put food on the table. After years of moving from apartment to apartment, searching for a more stable job, his mother finally decided she could no longer fulfill the basic needs of her only son.
So, she let a local youth football coach, Frank Walker foster her son LeBron James. At the age of 9, he moved into the Walker family. Walker then introduced him to basketball. Talking about living with the Walkers, he said,
“They made me get up every day and go to school. There were days I didn't want to go to school. Being part of a family, a mom-and-dad surrounding … you had a brother and you had two sisters … it was an unbelievable experience for me at a young age. It opened my eyes up to become what I am today, why I act the way I am today.”
