LeBron James Will Finally Do Some Comedy for You


LeBron James has decided he can do more than just play basketball in the NBA; he can also play basketball in the NBA as a loosely fictional character. So, now he'll reportedly do that in Ballers, a basketball comedy he'll star in alongside comedian Kevin Hart. Like Twins minus the scientific detail, the film will see James and Hart playing comically mis-sized siblings, with the latter carrying an inferiority complex thanks to his professional basketball star brother. That issue evidently changes when Hart "gets a chance to prove himself when he and some pals attend a weekend fantasy basketball camp in Miami." Should James's shift into acting be received more like Kazaam or Space Jam will determine if his next course of action is Steel 2 or selling briefs.
