James Makes Surprise Appearance At 'Appreciation Day'

LeBron James made an unexpected appearance at ‘LeBron James Appreciation Day’ in his home town of Akron on Saturday.

He did not sound like a player anxious to leave Cleveland for the New York Knicks, or anywhere else.

“Akron is my home, it’s my life,” James told the crowd after accepting the city’s first Hometown Hero Award. “Everything I do is for this city. I’m going to continue to do great things. I love every last one of you all. Akron is home.”
