LOS ANGELES – If there’s one thing Lakers superstar LeBron James regrets doing, it is naming his first child LeBron James Jr.
James talked about the issue on a new show “The Shop,” a collaboration between HBO and Uninterrupted, the digital media company started by James and Maverick Carter.
The series is set in a barbershop and features “unfiltered conversation” between James, Carter and a number of celebrity guests, according to a news release from HBO Sports.
“I still regret giving my -year-old my name because of that,” said James, who was raised by his mother, Gloria James.
He was responding to a question by comedian Jon Stewart on how he helps his sons deal with living up to the expectations of being the child of a celebrity.
“When I was younger, I didn’t have a dad. So my whole thing was like, whenever I have a kid, not only is he going to be a junior, I’m gonna do everything that this man didn’t do,” James said.
“They’re going to experience things that I didn’t experience. The only thing I can do is give them the blueprint, and it’s up to them to take their own course,” he said. GAD/Expat Media
