LeBron has accomplished so much during his NBA Career, it makes us all wonder, what he will do next? Another NBA Championship, a scoring title, or some other prestigious on-court accolade. Well, one thing that i’ve loved about LeBron James through the years is his involvement with the community. (Source: Black America Web, Tom Withers) This time, though, James has steppped away from the court and opened up a school!
For James, who recalled missing 82 days of school as a fourth grader while he and his mom “looked for stability,” the opening culminated years of planning by his family foundation.
“This means everything,” James told The Associated Press in an interview before the public event. “I think this is the greatest accomplishment for me because it’s not just me. A championship is for a team, that’s for an organization and a city. But these kids, this is for generation after generation after generation and it’s for these kids, so it means everything.”
It was an emotional day for James, who also made his first comments since signing the $154 million deal with the Lakers — a move still causing tremors across in the NBA.
James recalled beating the odds of his youth when life was a daily struggle for him and his mom. Nothing was easy as the pair constantly moved and it was only with the help of others than James found structure.
Now, he’s giving kids with the same problems a path. Click the link below for more info on LeBron’s new school!
