LeBron regrets pressuring son by naming him LeBron Jr

What makes it even more imposing is the fact the James was simply playing out of his mind last season, practically carrying the Cavs all the way to the NBA Finals. I've always felt like that was one of the historic franchises.

James' new school has several impressive features, including a grand set of curved stairways that greet visitors at the entrance, a unique "IPS" chandelier hanging from the trace ceiling, and 114 game-worn shoes lining the walls to the left and right. It has both a longer school day and a longer school year, there will be over 40 staff members, and students that complete the school's program (which has already been ongoing) will get tuition provided by James at the University of Akron, beginning in 2021.

On Sunday, James took to Twitter to state that the launch of the LeBron James Family Foundation and Akron (Ohio) Public Schools' new elementary school will be one of the best days of his life.

James, 33, moved to the city earlier in July after signing a four-year deal with the LA Lakers basketball team worth $154m (£116m). "Then it went from just sitting there, then it went [to standing up], then it went from me sitting on the bench to me getting in an argument [with another parent]". You look at the Lakers, and being able to play for a historic franchise, with so much history, you know?
