On this page, you will find 20 unique LeBron James coloring pages drawn by yours truly! My two young boys are OBSESSED with basketball, and even more so with LeBron (a.k.a. the GOAT, according to them).
I have included a wide range of different LeBron-themed coloring sheets, from highly detailed, simple outlines for kids, artistic interpretations, and even some Funko Pop-inspired pictures! I also tried to pick various jerseys, including the LA Lakers, Miami Heat, and Cleveland.
I usually don’t do many athlete-related coloring pictures, but I felt drawn (pun intended :p) to do a series on LeBron after watching several of his games and admiring his athleticism.
If you are looking to get started, you can begin by clicking on any of the below images or links, which will open the free PDF printable in a new tab. From there, you are free to download, print, or for coloring in on an iPad.
All of these coloring pages are on standard US letter size, but they also fit perfectly onto A4 paper sizes too! Enjoy!
Keep reading to learn why coloring these sheets can be enjoyable, and some fun crafts you and your family can make using them!
1. A Great Way to Wind Down
Whether you’re a full-time student or have to endure long work hours, by the end of the day, you’re likely worn out.
However, some people have a difficult time relaxing in the evening, due to the stress of the day or a need to be doing something productive at all times.
Coloring is a great way to de-stress, as it’s a calm, quiet activity that also keeps your brain working.
So, if you’re a LeBron James fan and need something to occupy your mind, print off and fill in our coloring pages of this great basketball icon.
2. A Good Project for Snow Days
If you live in a colder climate, you’re bound to run into days full of snowstorms and dangerous road conditions. In those moments, you may find you have to spend the day at home.
So, if you’re stuck for activities to do on such a day, and have exhausted most of your options, try downloading and printing off my LeBron James coloring sheets and express some creativity!
Also, if you have kids who are being kept home on a snow day, they may also enjoy coloring in these fun pictures to occupy their time.
3. A Cheap Fun Activity for the Family
Finding enjoyable things to do as a family can be difficult, especially on days when money is tight, and an outing is out of the question.
However, if your kids enjoy arts and crafts, such as drawing and painting, you can spend a fun afternoon as a family filling in the above LeBron James coloring sheets.
This would be a great activity for the kids to do while your family is watching a basketball game, or while enjoying a sports-themed movie.
Of course, you can also join your kids in this craft on quieter days. Such a solitary activity presents a good opportunity to talk to your kids about school, friends, and family matters.
4. Enhances Other Interests

Additionally, I have provided coloring sheets in a variety of different art styles, such as our Funko Pop version of LeBron James featured in my collection.
So, if you collect Funko Pops or simply love specific art styles, you can further combine your interests in the above subjects by coloring in these illustrations!
5. Gives You a Way to Multitask
Many people have a difficult time sitting still and watching a show or movie, and often need something to occupy their hands, like knitting, scrapbooking, or drawing.
However, if none of the above apply to you, try using my LeBron James coloring sheets as a way to keep your hands and brain busy while relaxing in front of the TV.
Further, if your kids have a difficult time sitting quietly and need something to keep them occupied, you can always engage in this fun and creative activity together.

7. LeBron James Coloring Sheet Scrapbook Project
If you’re looking for a project to do over the wintertime, you can use your leftover LeBron James coloring sheets to create a fun basketball-themed scrapbook/ scrapbook section!
Locate a scrapbook or binder you’d like to use, and gather a collection of paper, ephemera, and small decorative items to include on your pages.
Some items include washi tape, stickers, paper craft collections, stamps, and/or stencils.
Set aside the section you’d like to make basketball-themed in your book.
Use my LeBron James coloring sheets to decorate the page borders, use them as backgrounds, or cut out and paste the silhouette of the picture to the pages.
After placing your coloring pages, decorate the surface and border with the craft supplies mentioned above.
This is a great scrapbook idea for parents whose kids are in basketball, or for families who are major basketball fans!
