James, a three-time National Basketball Association champion with Cleveland and Miami Heat, excited high-profile stars and supporters with his move to Los Angeles - including West Coast rapper Snoop Dogg, who welcomed "King James". James' I Promise School is not just a new location for learning, but also intends on offering academic support, as well as educational, career and emotional support for the parents. The name of the school stems from the foundations road map for students who promise to go to school, do their homework, listen to teachers, ask questions and find answers, be respectful of others and live a healthy life. It has both a longer school day and a longer school year, there will be over 40 staff members, and students that complete the school's program (which has already been ongoing) will get tuition provided by James at the University of Akron, beginning in 2021. It was important for the foundation to help us and to look at something bigger. Then you look at the Lakers.
"I know these kids basically more than they know themselves". They're gonna experience things that I didn't experience. I walked the same streets, I rode the same bikes on the streets that they ride on. I went through the same emotions.
Tesla pushes suppliers to return payments
In June the company said it was eliminating 3,600 jobs, or 9 percent of its staff, as part of a restructuring effort. "They're anxious about their profitability but they don't care about their suppliers' profitability".
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.
While James takes pride in his charitable endeavors and his business interests, he also made it very clear that he is excited to come play for the Lakers "historic franchise" and get the team back to their wining ways. For it to all come to fruition at this point, I think timing is everything'.
