Now this is how to live like a king!
Earlier this week, LeBron James announced that he's partnering with the University of Akron and offering full college scholarships to potentially thousands of children coming out of his I Promise campaign!
The campaign and scholarship — the requirements of which haven't been fully finalized yet — will likely be something like this: for every student in Akron, Ohio to finish LeBron's I Promise campaign in high school (and there are nearly 2,300 of them!), the basketball star will cover their college tuition at UA!
The first eligible group is this year's class, currently in seventh grade, which will graduate high school in 2021 and be sent off en masse to college by King James himself!
LeBron spoke about the scholarships, telling reporters:

Kravitz took to Twitter to share a screenshot of a text from the Aerosmith frontman.
Everybody get up, it's time to slam now! We got a real jam goin' down, welcome to the Space Jam!
Sorry, we just had to get that out of our systems!!
While there wasn't much evidence that the followup flick would ever actually happen, the NBA star sent out a tweet today that has our hopes higher than ever! He wrote:

The Judd Apatow film is chock full of comedic actors — and James, who makes a surprise cameo!
Maverick Carter, James' business manager, relays just how much experience and work James needed before going on screen (none!):
It is time to be concerned about the women!
LeBron James accidentally exposed his manhood on national TV last night while trying to tuck in his pants, but he's not alone!
