NBA star LeBron James dedicates kids clubhouse in hometown he paid to have renovated
By The Associated Press

AKRON, Ohio (AP) ' LeBron James has cut the ribbon to open a clubhouse for children in Ohio named in his honor.

In a gym he played in as a kid, the NBA superstar Tuesday opened the LeBron James Clubhouse at an Akron Boys & Girls Club, which was renovated with $240,000 he donated through his family foundation. James said he was humbled to be able to help area youth, and the Miami Heat forward promised to continue giving back to a city that will "always be home no matter where I am."

It promises to be an emotional day for James, who will later be inducted into the athletic Hall of Fame at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School, his alma mater. James said he was overwhelmed by the honor.
