As LeBron James gears up for his 21st season in the NBA, he and his team, the Los Angeles Lakers, are eager to secure another championship title. Meanwhile, James is relishing in his role as a sports parent during this preseason period.
LeBron James has taken on the role of coach for his sons’ basketball teams in the past and is excited for his son Bronny’s upcoming debut with USC Trojans. However, Bronny had recently faced a health scare that has caused a slow recovery. In the meantime, LeBron attended his 8-year-old daughter Zhuri’s volleyball game over the weekend.
On a video posted by LeBron James on Instagram, he can be heard cheering for his daughter Zhuri with the words “Let’s Go Munchkin!” The clip is hilarious, as she turns to him with a look of disapproval that says “Dad, you’re embarrassing me,” which is similar to the intense frustration he feels during an important game on the court. LeBron James has won four NBA championships, making him a legend in the sport.
Come October 24, Zhuri’s father and the Los Angeles Lakers will come face to face with their Western Conference Finals nemesis, the Denver Nuggets. This game will mark the Lakers’ first home game as the reigning NBA champions, and they will hoist their very first championship banner in celebration.
LeBron James, the all-time leading scorer of the NBA, has released a new sneaker just in time for the basketball season. Despite the changing landscape of the industry over the past 21 years, James’ trademark sneaker brand remains iconic. Nike continues to expand on their success with the release of the LeBron 21, paying tribute to “King James” with a timeless purple and gold colorway. The “Freshwater” hue is a clear tribute to the Los Angeles Lakers, and features Violet Dust leather with University Gold accents and purple Cosmos on the heel counter and outsole.
