A virtual graduation ceremony on TV might not seem like much, but I think it’s a pretty cool move from LeBron James and everyone else involved.

America needs as much good news as we can get. If it helps put smiles on the faces of young people graduating high school, then why not do it?

Say whatever you want about LeBron James, but he’s made it crystal clear he loves giving back. The fact he’s doing this is just the latest example of that fact.

He’s leading a star lineup of people May 16 to help send off seniors into the next phase of their lives. This won’t make up for not having an actual graduation, but it’ll hopefully still be a pretty cool moment.
