AKRON, Ohio (AP) — As northeast Ohio waits to find out if LeBron James will return to the Cleveland Cavaliers, his foundation says it is partnering with a reality TV show to spruce up some houses in his Akron hometown.
The basketball star's LeBron James Family Foundation is teaming with the "Rehab Addict" TV show on the DIY and HGTV networks to make over the house and yard of a middle-school student and her family in early August.
The Akron Beacon Journal (http://bit.ly/1j0evAN ) reports that the 10-day project will also involve improving the yards of nine other families throughout the city.
Leading the project will be Nicole Curtis, the host of the series, which renovates homes in Detroit and Minneapolis. The Ohio project will be the subject of a "Rehab Addict" episode this fall.
