At the conclusion of the 2003–04 season, he became the first Cavalier to receive the NBA Rookie of the Year Award.
With final averages of 20.9 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 5.9 assists per game, he also became the third player in league history to average at least 20 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists per game as a rookie.

Lebron james Son
In a recent select basketball competition, Bronny James, the 17-year-old son of NBA star LeBron James, displayed some of his skills by leaping over a defender for a spectacular one-handed dunk.
On Monday in Paris, the U18 French Select Team defeated the California Basketball Club 97-85. The event happened late in the second quarter of the game.
According to For the Win, James’ youngest son Bryce also participates in the squad, but Bronny has received more attention as he considers his options following his anticipated graduation from Sierra Canyon School in the spring.
ESPN has the 6-foot-3 guard on their top-39 list of high school prospects.
According to the recruiting database of the sports network, he has received scholarship offers from universities including Kentucky, Michigan, and USC.
Ahead of his fourth season with the Lakers, James is ditching No. 23 in favor of No. 6.
The four-time NBA MVP began his professional career with the Cavaliers wearing No. 23, then switched to No. 6 when he played for the Heat from 2010-14.
After winning a couple of championships in Miami, James pulled out No. 23 for his second stint in Cleveland and stuck with it in Los Angeles.
LeBron James enters the season fueled by skeptics who doubt whether the Lakers can overcome questions about whether age will hold them back.
LeBron James’ sporting career has always seen him wear two numbers: No.23 and No.6, and with the Los Angeles Lakers star having switched jerseys to No.6 for the 2021 season, many are wondering why.
Throughout his life, James has worn the No.23 in homage to his idol, Michael Jordan, and would only change to No.6 when rules stated that double-digit numbers were not permitted.
James explained to reporters on Saturday that there wasn’t anything he wanted to put on his jersey instead of his last name.
“I actually didn’t go with a name on the back of my jersey,” James said (via ESPN’s Dave McMenamin). “It was no disrespect to the list that was handed out to all the players. I commend anyone that decides to put something on the back of their jersey. It’s just something that didn’t really seriously resonate with my mission, with my goal.
“I would have loved to have a say-so on what would have went on the back of my jersey. I had a couple things in mind, but I wasn’t part of that process, which is OK.
No matter who LeBron James faces on the court, he always has the support of his wife, Savannah Brinson, off the court.
Lakers star and Savannah are celebrating their ninth wedding anniversary this fall, the pair have a love story that goes all the way back to the early 2000s.
At the time, LeBron was 17 years old attending St. Vincent-St. Mary High School, where he had been recruited to play on the basketball team.
Although 16-year-old Savannah grew up in the same Ohio city as LeBron, she attended the rival high school.
The teenagers crossed paths when a mutual friend told Savannah that LeBron had asked for her phone number.
After calling him, LeBron invited her to one of his basketball games.
Reflecting back on their early days, Savannah admitted that she didn’t know much about LeBron’s basketball talent. “I had no idea who he was,” she told Harper’s Bazaar in 2010, according to Bustle.
