During the NBA’s offseason it can be tricky to come up with meaningful columns week in and week out. There just hasn’t been much movement. No new data to analyze, trades to criticize, or quotes to overanalyze. Luckily though, some news this week provided an exciting idea. On Tuesday, several news outlets reported something we’ve all been waiting for since the minute we found out LeBron James was entering the NBA Draft straight from high school: King James is making a sitcom.
Well, it’s not exactly the news we’ve been waiting for. What we really wanted to hear was that LeBron was going to star in a sitcom. Ever since Fox cancelled Brothers, I’ve been waiting for the next great athlete-driven comedy, or at least a summer blockbuster like this or this.
According to the report from ESPN, LeBron’s sitcom “will explore the lives of two men from the streets who attain fame -- one is an NBA star and one is not -- and how they deal with friends and families in the wake of that success.”
