"It's an honor to be awarded the Generation Change Award," James said (h/t Melissa Rohlin of Sports Illustrated). "It means a lot to not only myself, but to my family, to my fans, and also to my kids at my school back in Akron, Ohio. Thank you guys so much."

James helped open the I Promise School in 2018, aimed at helping students "in danger of falling through the cracks."

He dedicated the award to the students in the school:
