Lebron James Set To Produce Documentary For HBO

Published

LeBron James production company SpringHill has been hard at work behind the scenes, while James was in the NBA Finals. The company announced that James will produce a new documentary on HBO called Student Athlete.

The doc will look into “the complex rules of amateur athletics in America,” and also “how they affect uncompensated athletes and their families.”

Maverick Carter, LeBron James he said:

“This is an incredibly important story about the institutional denial of basic human rights for these student-athletes. When Steve Stoute [at United Masters] brought us this idea, it was a perfect fit for the kind of stories we want to tell at SpringHill.”

Stoute said that the idea behind the documentary is to show the NCAA’s hypocrisy:

“The NCAA blinded by revenue goals is turning student athletes into full-time employees. This documentary is incredibly important as it debunks the myth that student athletes are being fairly compensated by receiving scholarships and a valuable education. In fact, the demands put on these students by this oppressive system makes it impossible for them to get the education they deserve. The time is now to end this false narrative and reveal the truth of this exploitation.”

Back in February, James responded to the FBI investigation into corruption throughout college basketball, James said the NCAA is a “corrupt” organization.

“The NCAA is corrupt, we know that,” he told reporters. “Sorry, it’s going to make headlines, but it’s corrupt.”

James also discussed the argument that student-athletes get a free education for playing sports:

“I don’t know all the rules and regulations about it. But I do know what 5-star athletes bring to a campus, both in basketball and football. I know how much these college coaches get paid. I know how much these colleges are gaining off these kids. … I’ve always heard the narrative they get a free education. But you guys aren’t bringing me on campus to get an education. You guys are bringing me on it to help you get to a Final Four or to a national championship.”
