The LeBron James Family Foundation now serves more than 1,300 students with various programs, support, and mentors throughout the Akron area. "For these kids and for the whole city of Akron and more importantly, this is a huge moment for all of us". You look at the Lakers, and being able to play for a historic franchise, with so much history, you know?

"I did my due diligence after the season on the pros and cons on a lot of different teams, including the Cavs, Philadelphia, Houston and Los Angeles", James said.

"We want every kid that walks through this school to be inspired, to come ... away with something, something where they can give back", James said.

Carrie, who signed with the Browns as a free agent in March after four seasons with Oakland, said James' efforts lead him to want to do more.

"My first year when I came here, I didn't believe that we could even compete for a championship and we took the Warriors to a Game 6 in my first year here, losing an All-Star point guard and an All-Star power forward in the same playoff run".

Monday is the first day of school for about 240 Akron students who are attending the "I Promise School", an experimental public school backed by Akron native LeBron James. "I remember our foundation having a bike-a-thon, and I never thought a five-mile bike ride would turn into a school. Everything these kids are going through, the drugs, the violence, the guns, everything they're going through as kids, I know". And I think that's what everybody should do as players, they should do what's best for them and their family. I know everything they dream about. Meals will be provided for the students, and school hours will be from 9 a.m.to 5 p.m., according to ESPN.

While James is sure to boost the Lakers' chances of contending in the Western Conference, he'll have a tough time continuing his personal stretch of Finals appearances to nine. I mean, the people in the stands reacted to that.

"It's not really a normal day with LeBron James in your first day of school, but it will be pretty exciting today".

James' comments were an apparent reference to Trump's continued crusade against NFL players who protest during the national anthem.
