LeBron James says his move to join the Lakers was strictly a basketball decision — and had NOTHING to do with his budding Hollywood career.
… so, you believe him?
King James just spoke with reporters at Lakers Media Day where he was decked out in his full #23 Purple and Gold uniform.
During the Q&A session with reporters, he was asked if he ultimately picked the Lakers over other (better) teams so he could be closer to Warner Bros Studio … where he has a major development deal.
Remember, LeBron has movies coming out — “Space Jam 2” and a new “House Party” flick — and is working on other TV shows and a “Shut Up and Dribble” documentary narrated by Jemele Hill.
But, Bron says he’s a ballplayer first — and joined the Lakers because he felt it was the right fit for him on the court … even though they sucked last season.
Bron was also asked if he’ll be able to juggle all of his off-the-court projects and still be successful with the Lakers … and the answer was 100% confidence. (TMZ)
