2012 Olympic Gold Medalist Lebron James joined the Rachel Nichols for the ESPN Sunday Conversation. The ESPN Crew along with Rachel Nichols joined the NBA Champion as he held the LeBron James Family Foundation’s Wheels for Education program. Lebron met with 500 third-graders and their families at an Akron Aeros minor-league baseball game, where bicycles and school uniforms were distributed courtesy of the LeBron James Family Foundation. It was one year ago this month that James introduced Wheels for Education, a program that was designed to see more than 300 third-graders in the Akron Public Schools through to their high school graduations in 2021. In conjunction with corporate partners, each student received a laptop, a backpack with school supplies and a bike to start them on their way. This year another 220 students were selected for the program.
During his sit-down with Rachel Nichols, he touched on how it hit home attending the Wheels for Education event as he was once one of those kids struggling to find guidance. Through his teachers and coaches, he was able to get his life on the right track. This right track has brought him multiple MVP Trophies, an NBA Championship , an NBA Scoring Title and 2 Gold Medals. While many would be satisfied with this list of accomplishments, Lebron continues to strive for more. Much of his growth over the years has been attributed to his hard work, but also his time with the Team USA and Coach K. His relationship with Coach K has blossomed into a father-son bond where Lebron looks to him for not only guidance, but advice on and off the floor.
