LeBron James reveals which Fresh Prince episode makes him cry

Monday February 9th, 2015

It turns out LeBron James spends his free time the same way you do: Watching reruns on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. On Monday, he caught one of his favorite episodes, and decided to share it on Instagram.

James told his followers that the episode, in which Will Smith's father reappears in his life for a brief time, only to abandon him again, always brings a tear to his eye.
