"The story of King James will live on in Akron forever inside the one-and-only LeBron James Museum by Upper Deck Sports at House Three Thirty 👑."

The museum will be located in the basement of the HFF, a multi-use facility that offers financial health training, sports facilities, a dining facility, and more for the community.

Exhibit will trace King James's journey ... beginning with his early years in Springhill Apartments to becoming a four-time NBA champion.

Displayed will be his basketball awards at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School, his decision to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Miami Heat, his return to Ohio and more recently, his time with the Los Angeles Lakers.

In addition to his on-court career, It will also feature his many off-court ventures, including the I Promise School, his role in growing the Blaze Pizza franchise, and his acting career.
