AKRON, Ohio — LeBron James spent Tuesday at Cedar Point with his I PROMISE students, but Wednesday he spent his time in Akron hard at work delivering pizzas.

Yes, you read that correctly.

James, who is a partial owner of Blaze Pizza, was filming a commercial for the pizza chain on West Market Street in Highland Square “delivering pizza."

The commercial was shot to show James walking through his hometown handing pizza to others walking down the street.

West Market Street was closed to traffic for a few hours while crews filmed the commercial.

After the filming was over, patrons of the many businesses along West Market Street were able to enjoy free pizza and can now tell their friends that they had pizza delivered to them from one of the greatest basketball players of all time.
