LeBron James congratulates his former high school team on 17th regional title

LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers are in the middle of the regular season and are struggling a bit in the absence of Anthony Davis. However, the four-time NBA champion still took the time out of his day to congratulate his former high school team for winning its 17th regional title. 

St. Vincent-St. Mary, where James played high school basketball, will now compete for the state championship. James congratulated the team and head coach Dru Joyce II, who coached the Lakers star while he attended the school. 

St. Vincent-St. Mary is one of the best basketball schools in the country, and James helped put the school on the map years ago. 

James has continued his success since his days in high school, winning four NBA titles, four NBA Finals MVPs, four NBA MVP awards and various other accolades. It's nice to see that he's still supporting the school where it all began.
