Report: LeBron James’ media company the reason Alex Bregman left Klutch Sports

LeBron James’ star power and allure might have reeled in Anthony Davis as his partner in crime, but the other side of the coin has seen another star leave his agency of choice, Klutch Sports.

According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, Houston Astros third baseman Alex Bregman recently parted ways with Klutch due to a LeBron-speared Uninterrupted docuseries on the Astros’ sign-stealing scandal — something the AL MVP runner-up saw as a last straw in a string of eye-opening decisions.

Bregman had been represented by Brodie Scoffield of Tidal Sports Group, which became a baseball arm of Klutch Sports:

Not even two months later, Bregman felt angry and betrayed that Scoffield had put him in a position in which a fellow client, let alone the biggest megastar in the NBA, would help spearhead a docuseries that highlighted one of the darkest moments of his career.

Uninterrupted is a separate venture from Klutch Sports, though there are crossing cables, as James and longtime friend Maverick Carter are the constant brains behind its operation.

James is Klutch Sports’ oldest client and the main face of the brand that has since reeled in other major players like Ben Simmons and Draymond Green.

Uninterrupted partnered with The Cinemart to produce the Astros’ series, “Sign Language,” on Quibi, a short-form content platform.

LeBron James has also been utterly critical of the Astros and the sign-stealing scandal, something Bregman hasn’t forgotten:

Alex Bregman is looking for other representation, though he might find it tough to get on with one that is universally non-critical about the biggest scandal in his sport since the use of steroids. While no Astros players got in trouble for the sign-stealing scandal, manager AJ Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow both got the boot. Houston also received other penalties for its actions.
