The best player in the league, who is somehow the most hated player by fans in the league, continues to give back to the city & state that made him who he is today.

Just months after delivering the city of Cleveland it’s first NBA championship in franchise history, and a few days after signing a $100 million contract, LeBron brought 5,000 kids and their families to an amusement park on Tuesday.

According to TMZ:

“The annual trip to Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio encourages Akron kiddos to focus on their education before entering LBJ’s “I Promise” initiative — which offers a free college education after high school.

TMZ Sports spoke with a rep from CP, who tells us, “It’s an honor to work with a wonderful, dedicated group of people who provide so much to Northeast Ohio – and we’re happy to provide a ‘Best Day’ experience for their program families here at the park.”

LeBron teamed up with Chase Bank to help pay for the shindig … which also offers an opportunity to attend a sit-down convo with the King himself.”
