LeBron James to open new school for at-risk students

LeBron James to open new school for at-risk students”

"Sports has never been something that divides people, it's always been something that brings someone together." said James. I was a Yankees fan.

"You can look at the (NFL Dallas) Cowboys and you can look at the (NFL New England) Patriots, you can look at Manchester United, the Boston Celtics - these are like historical franchises".

He also used his LeBron James Family Foundation on Monday to officially open a new elementary school in his hometown of Akron, Ohio for at-risk students.

Jalen, opening up a school and helping out the community was unbelievable, but you really made yourself look pathetic by complaining that you didn't get the attention LeBron has.

I think we can all admit to being mad at some point in our lives for a silly reason, but Jalen Rose took it a couple of steps further Tuesday. I mean, the people in the stands reacted to that. During a White House panel in 2015, Obama said, "If we really want to solve issues like mass incarceration, poverty, racial profiling, voting rights, and the kinds of challenges that shocked so many of us over the past year, then we simply can not afford to lose out on the potential of even one young person".

Since LeBron James' recent move to the L.A. Lakers became official, the All-Star has not spoken of the decision that rocked the landscape of the National Basketball Association. While most felt that the pitiful postseason performance of the Cavaliers' supporting cast ruined any chances of LeBron returning to Cleveland, there were other intriguing options out there for the King. When James and his foundation announced the program in 2015, they said they could give scholarships to as many as 2,300 students. "So it wasn't as quick as it may seem".

The Lakers have a young squad and supporters expected them to draft another All-Star player to help James and the team challenge for the championship next term. It just wasn't as July 9th [range] as it was before.

"And obviously the Lakers haven't made the playoffs in a few years, but the Lakers organisation and historical franchise matches up there with all the greats".

Monday's grand opening was also "bittersweet", as James reflected on the reality that he will be leaving Cleveland to move to California.
