HOMEWARD BOUND? In Cleveland, Tim Warsinskey noted James on Saturday "was on hand to encourage and celebrate Akron elementary school students who are a part of his Wheels for Education" program at his high school, St. Vincent-St. Mary. There was a "sense the bond he shares with his hometown and old school is gaining strength." But whether or not that "impacts his decision to bring his basketball talents back to these parts next year remains to be seen." Saturday's event was "festive, well-orchestrated," and attracted "about 3,500 to SVSM's Cistone Field" (Cleveland PLAIN DEALER, 8/11). In Ft. Lauderdale, Shandel Richardson noted James donated new uniforms for all sports at SVSM, and "surprised the student body by participating in the runway fashion show" unveiling the uniforms (South Florida SUN-SENTINEL, 8/11).
