It's hard to define poverty because it is so relative. LeBron James grew up in Cleveland, Ohio in the United States. His mother, Gloria Marie James, was 16 when he was born. Life was a struggle as she tried to find reliable work and make ends meet. They often had to move from apartment to apartment in some of the poorer parts of Cleveland. Eventually LeBron's mother allowed him to move in with coach Frank Walker and his family in order to have a more stable family environment. LeBron may have been poor in many ways but it seems as though he always had loving family and friends around him and was never wanting for the necessities of life.
