On Sunday, LeBron James announced he's with her.

Writing in an op-ed for Monday's edition of the Akron Beacon Journal, the Cleveland Cavaliers star said he returned to Ohio with two missions: to win the NBA Finals and to "make sure my kids in Akron have what they need to become their best selves." James started The LeBron James Family Foundation in order to "give kids in Akron the resources and opportunities they need to stay in school and reach their dreams through education," he said, adding, "only one person running truly understands the struggles of an Akron child born into poverty. And when I think about the kinds of policies and ideas the kids in my foundation need from our government, the choice is clear. That candidate is Hillary Clinton."
