LeBron James is a renowned American professional basketball player for the Miami Heat of the National Basketball Association (NBA).

In 2012, King James made good on his promise to bring a championship to Miami. LBJ has come a long way, but he hasn’t forgotten his hometown of Akron, OH. Or the idea of a promise. His foundation’s Wheels for Education program provides support and school supplies to 300 underprivileged elementary schoolers. In return, they promise to stay in school until graduation. His PSA supports BoostUp.org, which gives at-risk teens encouragement and resources to stay in school. Meanwhile, the MVP is schooling people on the court.
