Speaking from experience, kids are already hyped on the final day of school.

But they go crazy if LeBron James walks in the door, as he did on the final day at his I Promise charter school in his native Akron, Ohio.

LeBron helped found the school to give the underserved children where he grew up chances he and many others did not have. He remains involved — and he remains a hero in Akron, where the reactions to his arrival for the day are priceless.

It meant a lot to LeBron, too.
