The whole sports world cannot stop talking about NBA super star LeBron James since he became a free-agent last week. And just last night, Maverick Carter, CEO of LRMR Marketing, said that LeBron will formally announce which team he will play for on an ESPN hour-long special tomorrow night. But, perhaps more importantly, LeBron’s team will sell sponsorships to the show, with proceeds donated to the Boys & Girls Club of America.
LeBron’s business manager said last night, “…we have generated funds that will be given to the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. LeBron has a longstanding commitment to giving back to the community, and has worked with the Boys and Girls Clubs in cities across the country.” And he is certainly correct. Just two months ago, the Akron native returned to his hometown and led cyclists on an 8-mile course and rewarded children who have performed well academically, made contributions to the community, and improved their physical fitness.
We can barely contain ourselves! Will LeBron play for the New York Knicks or Chicago Bulls? In just one day, the secret will be released. But while you’re waiting for the decision, check out our 11 facts about fitness.
