Lebron James Set To Produce Documentary For HBO



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.”


Chris Paul, Rondo, And Brandon Ingram Brawl In Lakers Home Opener



The Houston Rockets downed the Los Angeles Lakers 125-115 in Lebron James first home game at the Staples Center. James Harden led all scorers with 35 points, all of that is overshadowed by the 4th quarter brawl.

With four minutes left in the game, Rockets guard James Harden drew a foul while driving to the hoop, making a layup over Lakers forward Brandon Ingram to put the Rockets up by 109-108. Ingram, though, didn’t like the call. The 21-year-old quickly shoved Harden in the back, drawing a technical foul.

Ingram, Paul and Rondo were all ejected from the game after officials reviewed the incident. The three will likely face suspensions and fines from the league as soon as Sunday — since the Rockets play again on Sunday night.

“That’s unacceptable,” Carmelo Anthony said of the alleged spitting by Rondo. “You don’t do that to nobody — in sports, on the street. That’s blatant disrespect. You don’t do that. That’s unacceptable. … You don’t even see that in the streets, man. I don’t know what else to say about that.”

Harden defended Paul’s reaction.

“I mean Chris had to stand up for himself,” Harden said. “It is what it is. I don’t care what man, anywhere, anytime, NBA game or in the streets.”

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Lakers officials are backing Rondo’s “contention that he didn’t spit” on Paul, while the Rockets are insisting that he did.

James who is best friends with Chris Paul weighed in on what happened after the game. “I just tried to calm things down, that’s all,” James said. “Play basketball.”

NBA Players also weighed on their thoughts about the fight.
