LeBron James Opens 'I Promise' Public School in Akron Today

NBA Cleveland Cavaliers Championship Celebration

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James smiles during a news conference following Game 4 of basketball's NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors, early Saturday, June 9, 2018, in Cleveland. The school will expand year by year, going to second and fifth grades next year, ending with grades first through eighth by 2022. "It was so real and so candid; no one had a sense of, well I can't be myself here". James' I Promise School is not just a new location for learning, but also intends on offering academic support, as well as educational, career and emotional support for the parents.

The school was a joint venture between his LeBron James Family Foundation and the Akron, Ohio Public Schools and serves at-risk children in James's hometown.

One little game cancellation can't keep LeBron James away from his son's tournament, and it apparently can't deter Dwyane Wade, either. The two men met at James' Los Angeles-area house at the start of free agency, with James' agent and fellow Akron native, Rich Paul of Klutch Sports group, also taking part. Thus, we have compiled three centers that the Los Angeles Lakers may look to acquire this season. The I Promise School is a renovated school building located down the street from St. Vincent-St. I went through the same emotions, the good, the bad, the adversity. James signed a four-year, $153.3 million contract and told Lakers president of basketball operations that he's there for the long haul and not to make hasty decisions like trading young stars Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Josh Hart or Lonzo Ball for an established superstar.

Therefore, his idolization of Magic clearly played a role in his decision, as did his appreciation for the rich championship-winning history of the franchise.

Perhaps the Lakers were banking on Lopez re-signing because the team now looks very weak in the center department.
