On July 8, 2010 an estimated 10 million people watched LeBron James in what he called the ‘Decision’. The hour-long spectacle that would disappoint and break the hearts of almost every Cavaliers fan in Cleveland, give everyone in Miami reason to celebrate, and leave the rest of the sporting world in a state of confusion; ended up having a positive spin that not many saw.

The hour-long special raised $3 million for charity and recently the LeBron James Family Foundation, along side Hewlett-Packard, began rolling out what will soon be 1,000 new computers for 59 different Boys & Girls Clubs across the States. James has been committed to this cause since his July 8 ‘Decision’ and had no problem taking an afternoon off of basketball for the kids.

“I always said when I was growing up, ‘If I ever have an opportunity, if I ever got big enough, whatever the case may be, I will always try to give back as much as possible” James told the Toronto Star.

James took the afternoon off to greet some of the children from the foundation whom he mingled and hung out with after a short opening ceremony. LeBron checked out the new computers with the kids, posed for some photos and shared some laughs with them.

He has said on multiple occasions that he regrets some aspects of last July’s program, but adds that the money raised from it made it all worthwhile.

Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and appearance. I must say you’ve done a amazing job with this. Additionally, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Internet explorer. Excellent Blog!
