In collaboration with Akron Public Schools, the facility provides the opportunity for hundreds of kids to receive a high school education, as well as breakfast, lunch, free transportation for students and an opportunity for all graduates of the school to receive a free education from the University of Akron.
The NBA MVP received praise from everyone with any sort of heart or brain, so it wasn’t a surprise when Donald Trump made a tweet this morning (August 4) insulting James.
Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 4, 2018
While the thing that sticks out most is the racism, he does mention Michael Jordan as his greatest of all-time basketball player.
Though usually not one to comment about politics (or really anything controversial) Jordan apparently saw the tweet and released a statement in support of LeBron.

Ever try to bring someone into a debate to get them to agree with you and it backfires? That’s what happened here.
Shoutout to both Michael Jordan and LeBron James.
