While James' success on the basketball court has been at the center of his identity in Cleveland for much of his life, it seems clear that he is on the cusp of taking on a whole new role in his hometown. Everything they are going through as kids, I know. The Akron school will expand each year, adding second and fifth grades next year and will have students from grades 1-8 by 2022.

His LeBron James Family Foundation partnered with Akron Public Schools to design the school for public school students in the area who come from hard circumstances.

On Sunday, James tweeted that he was a bundle of nerves waiting for that first school bell.

"LeBron went to a public school", Keith Liechty-Clifford, the co-ordinator of school improvement for Akron Public Schools, told the L.A. Times. You can check out two new clips from The Shop, featuring James and Snoop Dogg, in the player below!

"I'm sitting there, and I'm watching the game, and I feel my hands just start sweating". The name of the school stems from the foundations road map for students who promise to go to school, do their homework, listen to teachers, ask questions and find answers, be respectful of others and live a healthy life.

Monday's grand opening was expected to be the time James would make his first public remarks since signing with the Lakers. "I walked the same streets". "I'm going to do everything that this man didn't do". LeBron said playing for a franchise drenched in championship history, even though they haven't sniffed the postseason in years, was a situation he simply could not pass up at this stage of his career.

James may be a millionaire more than a few times over, but he has no problem empathizing with the children the school was created to help.
