From Brian Windhorst's 1/22/07 Akron Beacon-Journal article (in which he also discusses rookie Shannon Brown's bizarre, it-could-only-happen-in-Cleveland ankle injury):
Two major business publications have reported the sports representation agency of Leon Rose, who is James' agent, will be acquired by Hollywood talent giant Creative Artists Agency. If it comes to pass, it will be interesting to see if it paves the wave for James to someday get involved in a major motion picture. James has maintained such an interest for several years and had informal talks with Spike Lee several years ago.
One idea already being bandied about is a movie featuring his popular Nike commercial characters, ``The LeBrons.''
``If it is the right opportunity, if it is the right fit for my personality, then I'll be open-minded about it,'' James said. ``If we could do a movie with `The LeBrons' that would be cool. It is something that could happen. It would take a lot of time and dedication, if the right thing comes along maybe it could happen.''
Though I've long envisioned LeBron as Ignatius J. Reilly in my never-to-happen big screen adaptation of A Confederacy of Dunces, this'll work. As long as The LeBrons: The Motion Picture kicks the crap out of Space Jam (and two hours of color bars would accomplish that exceedingly simple task), it'll be worth it.
