LeBron James Says He Regrets Giving Son Bronny His Name

LeBron James decided to make a move to Los Angeles earlier this month. Now he's entering Hollywood. 
Publish date:

LeBron James will make his first foray into the world of Hollywood since joining the Lakers with the announcement of a new HBO series titled 'The Shop.'

In partnership with HBO Sports and Uninterrupted, James' program will feature "unscripted conversation and debate" with various athletes and entertainers per a press release from HBO.

In the show's teaser, LeBron said that he regrets giving his son his name when Jon Stewart asks him about his kids living up to LeBron's legacy. LeBron James Jr. is currently playing on the AAU circuit.

"I still regret giving my 14-year-old my name because of that," James said. "When I was younger, I didn't have a dad so my whole thing was that whenever I have a kid, not only is he going to be a junior but I'm going to do everything that this man didn't do. They're going to experience things that I didn't experience. The only thing I can do is give them a blueprint and it's up to them to take their own course whenever that time comes."

LeBron and Uniterrupted released previous episodes of the show online and then took issue with Alabama football's similar video series called "Shop Talk." Uniterrupted sent a letter to Alabama regarding possible copyright infringement and intellectual property appropriation.
