Miami Heat All-Star LeBron James has been known to be very generous and always talks about his days at Akron, especially at his high school St. Vincent-St. Mary. This time, the Akron-bred NBA superstar gave back to his high school football team, for which he was also an All-State wide receiver.
James unveiled St. Vincent-St. Mary’s new football uniforms, which were created by Nike and LeBron himself. The new uniforms are called the new LeBron X Nike, exclusive uniforms to only James’ alma mater.
Even though the people of Cleveland and Akron may still have hatred towards LeBron for the 2010 Decision to take his talents to South Beach, but he is by far the most generous and charitable person in the community.
Just look at those uniforms in the Instagram photo James posted (right). They are slick. Black uniforms, black/chrome helmets, a golden leprechaun on the helmet, and stylish green Nike font on the name and number.
Maybe Cleveland and Akron fans do not care much about James showing off his alma maters new uniforms, which he styled himself in front of the team, the true question is if LeBron wants to re-join the Cavs in 2014?
A group of Kyrie Irving, Andrew Bynum, Dion Waiters, and Tristan Thompson to be with could be very enticing for the former Cleveland Cavalier.
St. Vincent-St. Mary may care about their new uniforms, but the community really wants to know if LeBron wants to come home and play for the Cavaliers again in 2014.

Ever since LeBron James and Chris Bosh joined forces alongside Dwayne Wade down in South Beach, many veteran free agents have been clamoring to join them for a title run.
Now, with Greg Oden signing for the veteran’s minimum on Friday with Miami, another veteran free agent wants to join him.
DeShawn Stevenson, who was recently waived by the Atlanta Hawks, expressed his interest in joining the Miami Heat on Twitter Saturday night.
The rumors of a Luis Scola trade between the Phoenix Suns and the Indiana Pacers became official on Saturday, when the forward was dealt for Miles Plumlee, Gerald Green, and a 2014 first-round draft pick (lottery-protected).
For the Pacers, it’s an immediate win. They now have an established veteran in Scola – who has the ability to shoot from the mid-range to compliment his post game – coming off the bench to spell David West. Losing a draft pick always hurts, but adding a veteran piece is more critical to a contending team like the Pacers than a pick that may “potentially” help them at some point in the future. As for losing a couple of non-rotation players in Green and Plumlee, Frank Vogel is not likely to lose much sleep over them.
Teri Washington is a good friend who formerly worked in the NBA media relations office. She is now doing work for the Players Association as they transition into finding a replacement for Billy Hunter, who will spend the next couple of years trying to keep himself out of jail.
She once told me a funny story (the two of us found it funny, others may not) about how when she was David Stern’s right-hand woman, the two of them had to attend a Republican Party function, and how Stern had to practically hold his nose before he walked into the room to shake a few hands (Stern is a hard-core Democrat). They both made it through the event, albeit uncomfortably.
And speaking of uncomfortable, the national outrage over George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the Trayvon Martin shooting is not subsiding. Nor should it.
