While James is no longer a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers, his impact is still fell throughout the city. That impact is perhaps felt strongest at Akron’s I Promise School, which James personally helped create.
It wasn’t long before James hopped on Twitter to respond to the wonderful video.
LOVE MY KIDS!! Thank you guys so much and I love y’all more than you guys know and think! 🙏🏾❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ https://t.co/12CuUHNupH
While James’ first season with the Lakers certainly has not gone as he certainly hoped it would, passing Jordan is a nice consolation prize.
As for his former team, the Cavs will look to finish the 2018-19 season on a strong note as they continue to build towards a bright future.
