Via Twitter, James retweeted a tweet from the officials Los Angeles Lakers account making note of his feat while also mentioning he is the first player to notch three consecutive triple-doubles in 32 years for the squad.

LeBron James Expands “I PROMISE” School Efforts to Provide Housing for At-Risk Families

LeBron James and his “I PROMISE” school will now provide transition housing for students and their families who are in need of a healthy living environment.

The LeBron James Family Foundation and Graduate Hotels announced the “I PROMISE Village by Graduate Hotels,” which will aid students whose families are dealing with hurdles like homelessness, domestic violence and additional unsafe leaving arrangements.

“Initially, our work was focused on helping these kids earn an education,” James said in a statement. “But we’ve found that it is impossible to help them learn if they are struggling to survive — if they are hungry, if they have no heat in the freezing winter, if they live in fear for their safety. We want this place to be their home where they feel safe, supported, and loved, knowing we are right there with them every step of the way as they get back on their feet.”

According to ESPN, the new village will be in a historic Akron apartment building, which will be renovated and available for living as soon as July 2020.

“Being able to offer this safe haven for our families is transformational in every sense of the word,” said Michele Campbell, the LeBron James Family Foundation executive director. “This is about more than just getting kids to school. This is about keeping them alive. We’re seeing families struggling every day with very real and often times unexpected issues that turn their worlds upside down. This will allow the family time and opportunities to grow while not worrying if they’ll have a roof over their head.”

The school currently has 250 third and fourth graders who are considered at risk and will have a full expansion from first to eighth grade by 2022.

“The ‘I Promise Village by Graduate Hotels’ will be a monumental next step for us and LeBron and his Foundation’s commitment to the future of the students and their families,” Graduate Hotels founder and CEO Ben Weprin said. “It’s humbling to see the change they are affecting on a daily basis and we’re honored to be a part of the journey.”

Amid widespread wildfires in Los Angeles and evacuations, LeBron James still found a way to work some Taco Tuesday magic. Yesterday, the Los Angeles Lakers superstar sent a taco truck with all the fixings as a thank you to the first responders and emergency crew on deck.

Firefighter crews have been battling the blaze which has destroyed several homes and over 650 acres. According to local reports, around 1,100 firefighters are working in tandem to control the blaze near the Getty Center on the city’s west side.

In an effort to thank first responders, James plunked down $3,000 to hire a Mariscos Jalisco food truck according to The Blast. James and his family were one of many who had to flee their homes as the blaze raged around their homes and wanted to show his appreciation for the effort.

The outlet adds that the truck served 600 tacos to the 150 workers on the ground.

James’ generosity didn’t go unnoticed as Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti tweeted out his thanks.

LeBron James Forced To Evacuate Home Due To Wildfires

LeBron James has just been reminded that celebrity will not protect you from natural disasters. He had to leave his residence as many other have in California.

TMZ is reporting that the Los Angeles Lakers starter had to bust a move when the wildfires got too close to his Brentwood, California home. The Cleveland native took to Twitter on Monday, October 28 to let his fans know things got too hot for him and his family. “Man these LA [fires] aren’t no joke. Had to emergency evacuate my house and I’ve been driving around with my family trying to get rooms. No luck so far!” he wrote.

An hour later he confirmed he and his crew were able to secure shelter shortly after evacuating.

He went on to publicly express his concerns for everyone else in that area and thank any staff helping families out in this time of need. “I [pray] for all the families in the area that could be affected by these [fires] now!” he wrote. “Pretty please get to safety ASAP”.

Not only have the ongoing flames created millions in damages and numerous power outages, but the air quality has been significantly degraded. According to analysts the high winds will only make the problems worse. Footage of the carnage below.

LeBron James’ Nike LEBRON XVII Signature Shoe Unveiled [Photos] #lebron17

LeBron James - Nike LEBRON XVII

LeBron James is officially up to his 17th signature shoe. Today (Sept. 19), the Nike LEBRON XVII was unveiled and it features all the cushioning.

😱😤🤫‼‼‼ 👑 What’s Known Don’t Even Need to be Said 🙏🏾

A post shared by LeBron James (@kingjames) on

“We had ‘the blueprint’ in mind for the 17, and we started from the ground up on everything, whether that was the construction of the knit or the way we could protect him underfoot with Air bags,” says the shoe’s designer, Nike’s Jason Petrie, in a statement. “The silhouette was a way to reset the mark for LeBron, and futuristically explore how we could help his game with the best that Nike offers.”

The mold is actually similar to the profile of the last couple of LeBron models, but packs in some new features. The shoe boasts the most Max Air in a LeBron shoe along with a soft foam pod below the Max Air units for even more cushioning. The forefoot gets Air Zoom units.

The LeBron 17 introduces Knitposite, a combo of lightweight Flyknit and heat-molded yarns that add both structure and color that culminates in durability and support that also resists stretching. Nuanced details on the tongue include phrases and symbols like “I’m King,” “LJ” and “23” and James’ Lion Crest.

The Nike LEBRON XVII is out September 27. Check out detailed photos below.
