LeBron James Regrets Naming His Son LeBron


LeBron James’ oldest son, LeBron Jr., is already winning titles. He’s more present in the media than many (most) NBA players.

He may only be 14-years old, but is already drawing attention from Kentucky and Duke. Sure, the hype wouldn’t be close to as big if his father was a regular man, but his father is the greatest active basketball player on the planet, so the hype generates itself.

But for this stage, high-school and AAU level basketball, the hype is too big.  A recent game of Bronny had to be canceled due to security concerns. The small gym quickly became too crowded and the game had to be called off.

LeBron Sr. blames the gigantic hype on himself. He said naming his son after him still is one of his regrets:


“I still regret giving my 14-year old my name, because of that. When I was younger, I didn’t have a dad, so my thing was like ‘whenever I have a kid, not only is it going to be a junior, [but] I’m going to do anything that this man [my father] didn’t do’. They’re going to experience things that I didn’t experience. The only thing I can do, is give them the blueprint and it’s up to them to take their own course…”
