Lebron James is the real ‘ chosen one’. Apart from receiving the title ‘ chosen one’ while he was in high school, Lebron James has gone ahead to live true to the name all through hiscareernot only in the sports arena but also in his social life. Audience Being a black, James is more of an idol among the black community for the very high standards that he has set as one of them. His sportsmanship has earned him a lot of love and appreciation form the rest of the races and in particular the Indian community. It is in this breath that I would like to dedicate this writing to all the true fans of basketball who would like their game to be ruled by responsible and exemplary social figures. Purpose The achievements and records that have already been set by James are far much beyond any debatable reasons that may call for persuasion so as to be accepted. This, therefore, implies that my paper is not at all meant to persuade anyone into appreciating the title ‘ chosen one’ given to James but it is meant to inform my audience of the reasons behind people refereeing to James as ‘ chosen one’.
