LeBron James’s Biggest Fans: A Gang of 200 Rowdy Grandmothers

The grandmothers fan club was founded in 2006. James was still a young star for the Cavaliers, but they had already been following him for many years. The women cooed over James at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School in Akron, where he came into fame as a high-school basketball legend, and they were giddy when he dragged the team about an hour away to the NBA Finals in 2007. At that time it seemed inevitable that James would bring a sports-tortured city its first NBA championship.

 

The grandmothers here say they stayed true to James the entire time he was in Miami. This wasn’t a Cavaliers fan club. It was a James fan club.
