LeBron James is currently in his 21st season in the NBA, but although he has not yet finished his career, the Los Angeles Lakers superstar will open a museum dedicated to himself.
The LeBron James Family Foundation will open a museum dedicated to James in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. The museum will tell the story of how LeBron became the basketball player he is today and will showcase his accomplishments throughout his career. This museum will feature memorabilia from LeBron’s career, including the entire board of the 2003 NBA Draft, in which he was selected with the first overall pick.
The museum will officially open on Nov. 25 and admission will cost $23, just like the number LeBron wore for most of his NBA career.
“I can’t wait for fans around the world to peek behind the curtain to see what we built and where it all began.”, wrote LeBron James on X.

Let’s say it is quite unusual for an active player like LeBron James to self-dedicate a museum. King and his history are unusual by definition, though.
