LeBron gives out computers
LeBron James' "Decision" is paying off for more than the Miami Heat.
His foundation has started delivering 1,000 computers to 59 Boys & Girls Clubs nationwide, beginning with an event in Miami on Wednesday. It's part of the commitment James made last summer, when his special in which he said he was joining the Heat raised more than $3 million for charity.
