LeBron James

American basketball player

LeBron James is an American basketball player playing for the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA. His nominal position is that of a low winger, but James' physical conditions (dynamism, weight) and his exceptional field review make it difficult to assign him a position according to traditional criteria, as in practice he can play both the role of a playmaker and a strong winger. 1)
