LEVELAND (AP) - For the second straight year, LeBron James will make a big assist off the floor during All-Star weekend.
James will dedicate a state-of-the-art playground at the Robson Boys and Girls Club of Phoenix. Last season, James and his foundation teamed with State Farm on a similar project in New Orleans, where they installed at St. Bernard Recreation Center, devastated by Hurricane Katrina.
"A playground is an important place for kids to play, have fun, and hang out with friends and family," said James, who won his second All-Star MVP last year in New Orleans.
James has done similar charity work in his hometown of Akron,
sponsoring a popular bike-a-thon and providing book bags and school
supplies to needy families.
