Lebron James unveils innovative school in hometown Akron Ohio

"And I was like, 'Oh wow, this is all because of sports'".

"We just want everything for them", the three-time National Basketball Association champion said.

Asked by Lemon about the prospect of entering politics after his playing days, James at first dodged the subject like so many defenders throughout his career.

The public school, in which James is a stakeholder through the Lebron James Family Foundation, serves 240 third and fourth-grade students, and will expand to grades one through eight by 2022.

LeBron James is inspiring more than just kids with his school in Akron.

James has received a lot of attention for his school opening and rightfully so.

A spokesperson for James said putting a number on the commitment would be inaccurate because the cost of tuition could change.

Rapper Drake is to set aside some time from his music to act as executive producer for the series " Euphoria ". Delving deeper into the TV world, Drake is also involved in the return of British drama Top Boy .

"What I've noticed over the past few months", James said. "It was mentally challenging. I rode the same bikes on the same streets they ride on. everything these kids are going through, the drugs, the violence, the guns, everything they going through as kids, I know".

"I think we all see that he made the best decision for himself and his family". Each student will also receive their own bicycle and helmet.

Students will also be provided with meals during the day, as well as services to help them deal with stress, or parents who are struggling to make ends meet.

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.

"I know that sport was the first time I was ever around someone white", James said. "We want to create an environment of family where you want to always be around your family", he said.

From his famous "U bum" tweet, to his Uber segment with reigning Finals MVP Kevin Durant, to even appearing on Hilary Clinton's campaign in 2016, James' political stance has never been a mystery. More than 40 staff members will attempt to accelerate the development of children who qualify for the program based on performance and socioeconomic factors.
