LeBron’s Bracelet: What’s your Promise?

In August of 2011, an important promise was made in Akron, Ohio. 342 Akron Public Schools third-grade students made a promise to their hero. They promised him they would go to school, be respectful to their parents, teachers and peers, be active and make good decisions. In return, he promised them that he would be the best role model he could be, on and off the court.

    I, Rolando Pharr PROMISE to make a generous contribution every year to the LJFF. In April of  1985 a handshake PROMISE was made concerning three month old LeBron James’ “Dr J” Christening. When that PROMISE is Honored, I will immediately start honoring mine. Check out the Youtube video “LeBron’s Cosmic Connection”. You knew there was Something Special about dat boy. I PROMISE

  • Chabrydesmom

    My 14 year old son is a huge LeBron fan!!! I got him tickets to a game for Christmas that will be played on his actual birthday in March. He is going through a rough time right now because of an absent father. He is depressed, has let his grades dropped, and withdrawn himself from his friends. His doctor and I are working together to get him back on track, but when he saw the commercial about LeBron’s Promise it gave him an extra push toward the right path. Thank you LeBron James for giving my boy a reason to strive to do better in all aspects of his life.

    I am so impressed.  In today’s world it is inspiring to see such a talented man that is doing the right thing for the young children that look up to him.  Thank you for not letting your fame go to your head, and for being mindful of the influence you have on children around the planet.

  • Aric McCray

    Lebron is my favorite basketball player and watching him play it motivates you to wanna go out and work hard on your game… I feel that he is a great role model on and off court, he is humble and respectful. One day I pray that I can meet Lebron and watch him play in person.

  • JJ

    He should probably stop complaining about how he doesn’t make enough money. Not much of a role model if you are telling kids that you should be upset that $17 million a year isn’t enough.

    • Friends

      You are an idiot. You realize this guy could be making 30 mil easy a year? He took a huge pay cut to live in Miami close to his family.

  • JJ

    My promise is to root for the Spurs

  • Erik

    Falling over without contact. Sprinting the length of the court while protesting a call. The stare down of jason terry. Oh yeah, great role model.

  • Zinger3161

    how about promising to make shipping available outside of the USA.

  • tiago
