A lot of athletes just fucking suck. LeBron James does not appear to be one of them.
The Cleveland Cavaliers superstar has agreed to spend $41 million to send 1,100 at-risk youth to the University of Akron. He is providing guaranteed, four-year scholarships to cover the full cost of tuition.
LeBron has played a big role in trying to make sure Cleveland gets out of the shithole. He's brought fame and stardom, started community service programs, and is now trying to change the future of these students from his hometown of Akron.
In order to be eligible for the scholarship, the students will need to have graduated from the Akron school system, and have completed some form of community service. Other details TBD.
Regardless of whether you think he's the greatest of all time (what's up, Michael Jordan) or just a balding bro you love to hate, LeBron James did something cool. And we respect that.
Fuck yeah, LeBron.
