LeBron James to open I Promise School on Monday

Zlatan boasts 'I could play with Le Bron without a problem'

LeBron James didn't make a snap decision in free agency to join the Los Angeles Lakers. "Past year was the first time I really had some time to go watch them play".

After adding James, the Lakers - who went 35-47 last season under coach Luke Walton - took the motley crew approach by signing Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Rajon Rondo, Lance Stephenson, Michael Beasley, and JaVale McGee.

The NBA star continues to show why he's one of the most charitable athletes in the world, announcing that his public elementary school, the I Promise School, will open on Monday. According to Keith Liechty, the Akron Public Schools' liaison to the James' Foundation, they looked at reading data and identified students who were a year or two behind in the subject. Corresponding pairs will be sold by Upper Deck and proceeds will help fund the school and the foundation. Hopefully Monday's school opening is just the first of many more great days for the three-time National Basketball Association champ in Northeast Ohio. "Basically, more than they know themselves".

Ex-NATO commander: Trump comments 'worst nightmare' for Montenegro
On Thursday, the country released a statement to let people know that it is the least likely to start a war. "Right. When Trump spoke in Warsaw past year , his speech was repeatedly interrupted by chants of "Donald Trump !"

Instead of going the route of a second superstar, mostly because Paul George made a decision to stay with the Oklahoma City Thunder and the San Antonio Spurs were stingy with Kawhi Leonard, the Lakers chose to add veteran bench pieces on one-year deals. I rode the same bikes on the streets that they ride on. "Then it went from just sitting there, then it went [to standing up], then it went from me sitting on the bench to me getting in an argument [with another parent]". The good, the bad, the adversity.

"You look at the Lakers, being able to play for a historic franchise, with so much history. I think timing is everything".

James is undeniably one of the greatest to ever grace the basketball court, and greatness comes with a price - especially for his teammates. This is where I have on one hand, my school which I'm blown away by.
