Gloria is fearless, and Lebron's biggest fan. Last year in the playoffs, she almost decked Paul Pierce after he flagrantly fouled her son to stop an easy basket (luckily, Kevin Garnett was there to calm her down):
Lebron's response: Momma, sit down!
Now, she may not look like much standing next to these NBA all-stars, but Gloria's tall, buff, and aggressive - traits Lebron seems to have inherited. Looking at the kid, I suspect she fed him some pretty big breakfasts, too. It wasn't easy for Gloria to raise Lebron - his dad was a deadbeat, and at times she had to send her son to live with another family. But despite all the instability, Lebron always knew there was one person out there who always had his back. With a mother like that, who needs steroids?
Here are some of King James' most amazing plays this year - he was named league MVP a few days ago. Happy Mothers Day!
