LeBron James' Barbershop-Set Talk Show The Shop Greenlit at HBO

LeBron James' Barbershop-Set Talk Show The Shop Greenlit at HBO

While James has taken some flack from those who believe joining the Lakers means The King no longer is prioritizing winning, the NBA's second-best player loved what James did.

The "I Promise School" is a public school similar to the one James came up through, but is much better funded and has superior facilities and supplies than what James had before.

James' new school has several impressive features, including a grand set of curved stairways that greet visitors at the entrance, a unique "IPS" chandelier hanging from the trace ceiling, and 114 game-worn shoes lining the walls to the left and right.

The Los Angeles Lakers' new star forward opened up a public school in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. I rode the same bikes on the streets that they ride on.

LeBron James Jr. hasn't even started his high school career, but the eighth grader is already drawing college interest. He made a decision to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers earlier this month and has started the next stage of his life in L.A. However, that doesn't mean that much of his heart doesn't still lie in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. The name of the school stems from the foundations road map for students who promise to go to school, do their homework, listen to teachers, ask questions and find answers, be respectful of others and live a healthy life.

James, 33, signed a four-year, $145 million deal. I rode the same bikes on the streets that they ride on. Corresponding pairs will be sold by Upper Deck and proceeds will help fund the school and the foundation. "Then it went from just sitting there on the bench to me getting in an argument".

"What do you say to your kid, living up to you being their dad?" "And you look at the Lakers, being able to play for a historic franchise with so much history and being able to partner with Magic Johnson, someone I looked up to when I was younger".
