My favorite word is NBA. The NBA is important for me because I have been watching since I was 10 years old. 

My favorite player is Lebron James because he inspires me to keep watching basketball games. My favorite player has played for a lot of teams. 

Lebron James became an immediate star after skipping college to join the NBA Cleveland Cavaliers. 

He led the Miami Heat to NBA titles in 2012 and 2013 and won another championship with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2016. 

And then Lebron James joined the Los Angeles Lakers in 2018. The Los Angeles Lakers may win an NBA championship title with the new team. It is possible that they will win the NBA championship titles.

Lebron James was born on December 30, 1984, in Akron, Ohio. At an early age James showed a natural talent for basketball. He was recruited by St. Vincent School. Many high school players joined their basketball team in 1999. 

Even me and my brother play basketball with our cousin. When we have free time we go to the park and we play 3v3 in the park. Sometimes my cousin calls to come and watch the game at his house. He buys drinks and we watch the Lakers games because the Lakers are my favorite team in the NBA.

And that is why my favorite word is NBA, because I love the game of basketball, I like to watch the games and be with my cousin.

    It was great how you talked about one of the greatest players to ever play the game, and explained how he got there. He inspired millions of people and when he decides to leave, the game wont feel the same anymore.
