Dr. J had THE FISH THAT SAVED PITTSBURGH, Michael Jordan had
SPACE JAM, and Shaquille O'Neal had BLUE CHIPS… then KAZAAM… then
STEEL… then the Congressional Medal of Honor.
And now LeBron James, the Hitchcock of the Hardwood, will have
FANTASY BASKETBALL CAMP, a Brian Grazer-produced comedy to be scripted
by the hip-and-now Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel. According to Variety,
the film will center on the antics of "five guys from different
backgrounds" who head out to Las Vegas to attend the LeBron James
Fantasy Basketball Camp. Once there, they inexplicably get comfortable
enough with the once and future MVP to start bothering him with their
serious/silly personal travails. In other words, it's CITY SLICKERS for
hoops fans with LeBron playing the Jack Palance role.
How about winning a title before you pursue other careers? I'll make one guarantee about this movie – LeBron's acting will be awful.
