James also talked about the emotions he feels while watching his sons play in basketball tournaments, something he's done much more frequently in recent years. Now, the day is finally here and kids are pouring into I Promise for the first time. The school will act as a learning facility for 240 at-risk OH children in the third and fourth grade with plans to expand to grades 1-8 by 2022.
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 expects the opening of the school, which will cater to third and fourth graders, to be one of the greatest moments of his life.More news: Disney is officially buying Fox studios for $71 billion

The three-time National Basketball Association champion also spoke about how watching his sons, Bryce and LeBron James Jr.
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. "It was so real and so candid; no one had a sense of, well I can't be myself here".
In a video he released Sunday on his "Uninterrupted" Facebook page, James spoke about the connection he feels to the children of northeast OH, and the pride he feels in opening this school. The I Promise School is a renovated school building located down the street from St. Vincent-St. In a preview for his upcoming HBO show The Shop, James spoke about how much he gets into his kids' games and even admitted to arguing with other parents.
Therefore, his idolization of Magic clearly played a role in his decision, as did his appreciation for the rich championship-winning history of the franchise.
