"Growing up I was a Cowboys fan, I was a Bulls fan, I was a Yankees fan".

"You look at the Lakers", said James.

LeBron James' greatest accomplishment as a human being might have happened today.

LeBron James' Family Foundation and the Akron Public Schools opened the doors to the "I Promise School" on Monday, which will help some of Akron's most challenged, at-risk students with education and support, as well as educational, career and emotional support for parents.

In that same video, James also opened up about joining the Lakers and what it means to be a part of an organization with so much history. In addition to the normal curriculum, I Promise will provide resources to students' families and include an on-site food bank.

Jose Mourinho is already having a meltdown at Manchester United and the new Premier League season hasn't even started yet. This Liverpool defeat will do little to boost confidence, especially with European champions Real next up in Miami.

The foyer of the I Promise School features two walls that bookend the main staircase.

The school will first host 240 third and fourth grade students, but will expand to students in first through eighth grades by the year 2022.

The "I Promise School" is the culmination of almost a decade of work by James' foundation, with its focus on educating children from challenging situations or backgrounds.

James joined the Lakers with a four-year contract worth US$153.3 million (NZ$225m) this month, after the worst five-year period in the franchise's history.

Johnson, the Lakers' president of basketball operations, has been hailed for the coup, yet some have felt the location was the true draw.

James says he didn't know about Gilbert's comment. "And then on the other hand, I'm moving".

For me to be in this position now, the excitement I have to be a Laker I am happy to be a part of it because I believe the Lakers is a historic franchise we all know that but it's a championship franchise and that's what we are trying to get back to.

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.
