Day 1 amounts to ... nothing

AKRON, Ohio -- Yep, I had travel problems.

My first flight today was cancelled.

So I had to get rebooked.

All of which forced me to arrive in beautiful Ohio much later than anticipated, way too late to see anything at the LeBron James Skills Academy. Consequently, I'm at the hotel entertaining myself with Michael Jackson coverage because there is nothing funnier than watching his ex-wife threaten a reporter before dropping an F-bomb, over and over again.

Anyway ...

Tuesday should be great.

Here's the schedule of things at the LeBron James Skills Academy:

9:00-11:00 am: High school players workout

Gary, take good notes.  I am really curious how next 2010 and 2011 compare to this years class.
