LeBron James' "The Shop" will debut on HBO in August

LeBron James 33 is a three-time NBA champion

He told reporters earlier this year that his family would play a large role in his decision about where to play moving forward, before he signed with the Los Angeles Lakers in free agency. James attended Akron Public Schools for eight years, and his mom, Gloria James, had help from the community - people who looked after them and made sure they got what they needed. It's kind of bittersweet timing because on this hand, I have a brand new school that's opening and I want to be there on a day-to-day basis, you know, 10 toes down for these kids.

But, the choice to join the Los Angeles Lakers was clearly a bold one.

While discussing the opening of the I Promise School in Akron, LeBron expressed some regret that he wouldn't be around to be a part of the school's day-to-day operations.

"Tomorrow is going to be one of the greatest moments (if not the greatest) of my life when we open the #IPROMISE School", James said on Twitter. According to the Los Angeles Times, the I Promise school is an Akron public school for 240 at-risk third- and fourth-graders that offers a special level of support and education.

LeBron James is continuing to do work in OH after leaving for the Los Angeles Lakers, as his foundation opens a new a school in Akron on Monday.

'Growing up, I was a (Dallas) Cowboys fan, I was a (Chicago) Bulls fan, I was a (New York) Yankees fan. James added that The Shop was partly inspired by his experience as a kid listening to adults in barbershops "talk about sports, clothing, politics, music" and everything else.

In that same video, James also opened up about joining the Lakers and what it means to be a part of an organization with so much history. "So, my whole thing was, whenever I have a kid, not only is he going to be a junior, but I'm going to do everything that this man didn't do". "Yeah, you got to have thick skin.' said Nance".
