Throughout his career, LeBron James has made it well known the importance of his mother, Gloria, in his upbringing, says USA Today.

His father, however, is a different story. Gloria was just 16 when she gave birth to LeBron, and his father, Anthony McClelland, out of the picture, she raised him as a single mother.


The four-time NBA MVP has not forgotten, and posted a powerful open letter to his father on Instagram on Wednesday.
