While James has taken some flack from those who believe joining the Lakers means The King no longer is prioritizing winning, the NBA's second-best player loved what James did. "Everything these kids are going through, the drugs, the violence, the guns, everything they're going through as kids, I know". The two men met at James' Los Angeles-area house at the start of free agency, with James' agent and fellow Akron native, Rich Paul of Klutch Sports group, also taking part.

National Basketball Association superstar LeBron James says it is a "dream come true" to have made the historic move to the Los Angeles Lakers.

On Monday, the basketball great opened the I Promise School in his hometown of Akron, Ohio.

James was to be at the school Monday to welcome students and make his first public comments since deciding to join the Lakers.

James hopes that in opening this school it will not only help countless children but also possibly help who he describes as, "the future Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Sean Diddy Combs, Jay Z, maybe even the next LeBron James". "He went to Akron public schools". I've always felt like that was one of the historic franchises.

At the midway point of the season, Hamilton has a 17 point lead heading into next weekend's Hungarian GP. Lewis Hamilton avoids pitting at the last minute, cutting across the grass to get back on track.

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. "I walked the same streets". I went through the same emotions.

"They're going to experience things that I didn't experience", James said.

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.

The 33-year-old this summer left the Cleveland Cavaliers for the second time in his career, before moving to Hollywood on a four-year, $154million (£117m) deal.
