Former player and basketball great Magic Johnson has called James the "best player in the world". "Everything these kids are going through, the drugs, the violence, the guns, everything they're going through as kids, I know". The Akron school will expand each year, adding second and fifth grades next year and will have students from grades 1-8 by 2022. I've always felt like that was one of the historic franchises.

According to the Los Angeles Times, James' foundation was the top donor towards the construction of the school and worked with Akron Public Schools to meet all standards and regulations.

The Los Angeles Lakers' new star forward opened up a public school in his hometown of Akron, Ohio.

Shareef O'Neal knows it's hard following in his National Basketball Association superstar dad's footsteps. but says Bronny James is thriving under that same spotlight. sharing a touching message to LeBron's oldest son.

The foyer of the I Promise School features two walls that bookend the main staircase. LeBron said playing for a franchise drenched in championship history, even though they haven't sniffed the postseason in years, was a situation he simply could not pass up at this stage of his career.

"Thank you Northeast Ohio for an incredible four seasons, " James wrote. The I Promise School is a renovated school building located down the street from St. Vincent-St. "Then it went from just sitting there on the bench to me getting in an argument". Durant has often cited James as an inspiration for his own move from Oklahoma City to Golden State in 2016.

While James takes pride in his charitable endeavors and his business interests, he also made it very clear that he is excited to come play for the Lakers "historic franchise" and get the team back to their wining ways.
