The Mayor of Los Angeles joined Akron Mayor Dan Horrigan today for a tour of the new school that LeBron James helped make possible.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti toured the I Promise School, which opened this school year for third- and fourth-graders. LeBron James has called it the kind of school he wishes he could have attended when he was a kid in Akron.

A new depiction of LeBron James hangs in the basketball star's I Promise School in Akron. According to LeBron James Family Foundation, Phoenix-based artist Kris Rhymes created the piece, called "Kings Music" and brought it to the school where he also shared  a lesson on art with the students. “I hope 'Kings Music' will serve as a source of inspiration to the students of the I Promise School,” Rhymes says.

The Cavs in the post-LeBron James era are beginning to take shape.

The team has spent the summer developing its young prospects and is keeping a key piece of the 2016 championship team; Kevin Love is now under contract for the next five years.

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says Love has always been the talk of trade rumors, and now he’s the face of the Cavs.
