LeBron James has camera crews following him for business venture between SpringHill Productions, NBA Entertainment
Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James has had camera crews following him around everywhere he goes, and now we know why.
According to Dave McMenamin of ESPN, LeBron James has been “followed by camera crews stemming from a joint business venture between SpringHill Productions and NBA Entertainment.”
Aside from the crush of coverage James has received in his inaugural campaign with the Lakers, nearly every step of the way — practices, shootarounds, games both at home and on the road — James has been followed by camera crews stemming from a joint business venture between SpringHill Productions and NBA Entertainment, sources told ESPN.
The purpose of the crews is unclear — a docuseries such as “More Than An Athlete” or perhaps a full-length documentary such as “More Than a Game”? But footage is being collected and the tapes are being banked.
LeBron James recently made headlines when he was talking to his youngest son at his basketball game. People were wondering why James was mic’d up at his sons’ game. This news from ESPN makes that interaction between LeBron and his son clear now.
Part of the reason James signed with the Lakers is so he could be in Hollywood and work on his entertainment empire. Both of his sons play basketball in California as well. The four-time MVP is currently out with a groin injury, but LeBron can still work on other things.
James is averaging 27.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 7.1 assists per game on the year for the Lakers while shooting 51.8 percent from the field, 35.6 percent from the 3-point line and 68.2 percent from the free-throw line. The King has 17 double-doubles and three triple-doubles.
