The city of Akron is saluting LeBron James as he gets ready to leave Cleveland for Los Angeles.
It was announced last night that the Cleveland Cavaliers star is going to the Los Angeles Lakers on a four-year deal worth 154-million-dollars.
Soon after the news broke, the city of Akron wrote a tribute to James on Twitter.
The post praised the Akron native for his contributions to the city both on and off the court.
Akron knows that @KingJames is the greatest just as much for what he does on the court, as for what he does off it. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for all you did and continue to do for our great city. Always #JustAKidFromAkron pic.twitter.com/Nw7iFOggpf— City of Akron, Ohio (@AkronOhioMayor) July 2, 2018
