James is the executive producer of the series along with business partner Maverick Carter and agent Rich Paul.

James is behind a three-part documentary series, "Shut Up and Dribble", announced Monday by Showtime.

The series traces the modern history of the league and its players, starting with the 1976 merger of the freewheeling American Basketball Association and the National Basketball Association, and explores how the top players have expanded their reach off the court in fields such as business and fashion while becoming icons in the process. Gotham Chopra, who directed Tom Brady's Facebook docuseries Tom vs. Time and AT&T's Religion of Sports series, will direct Shut Up And Dribble.

Michael Jordan said he supports LeBron James after the fellow basketball legend was attacked by President Trump in a tweet late Friday. "I like Mike", the President wrote on August 4.

When he got to the sideline after the match concluded, he covered his face with a towel and cried, his chest heaving. Not just my hip, but the rest of my body as well".

Back in February, LeBron James gave an interview to ESPN's Cari Champion in which he discussed race, politics, being a public figure and his personal criticisms of President Trump.

O'Neal, who just graduated from Crossroads School for Arts and Sciences, said he wishes he could've stayed one more year to play alongside James Jr., who will be attending that same school next year. "[Is] he's kinda used sports to kinda divide us, and that's something that I can't relate to".

"It looks like LeBron James is working to do good things on behalf of our next generation and just as she always has, the first lady encourages everyone to have an open dialogue about issues facing children today", a statement issued by Melania Trump's spokeswoman said.
