    LeBron James May Star in Spike Lee Film
    2 hours, 47 minutes ago

    AKRON, Ohio - Fans who flock to see LeBron James star on the basketball court may soon be able to see him starring on the big screen in a movie directed by Spike Lee (news).

    The popular Cleveland Cavaliers rookie is in talks with Lee to develop a movie, James' agent, Aaron Goodwin, said Friday.

    "We're still in the planning stages," Goodwin said. "We don't have a script yet. We have a production team in place. Spike has been interested for months now, and LeBron is excited about the project."

    Attempts to reach Lee at his production company, 40 Acres and a Mule, were unsuccessful.

    Lee, known throughout the NBA for his presence in courtside seats at New York Knicks games, directed a series of promotional commercials for TNT's basketball coverage before this season, including one featuring James in a crib with children singing to him.

    Last year, Akron-based producer Joe Marsh tried to entice Lee to direct a documentary on James' rise to stardom. Marsh sued James for $15 million, claiming the player backed out of an oral contract. James' attorney denies the claim.

    Let me guess.
    Denzel's character had a child from another woman while he was married, and he didn't know of it until Lebron went to visit him in jail.
    Unlike Ray Allen, he wants a relationship with his father from the get-go and advice since he's entering the NBA straight out of highschool.

    Thanks to his contract with Nike, Lebron is able to pay Johnny C. and crew enough to make a case for him to be released.


    Eventually Ray Allen, who now plays for the Lakers and is considered a top 5 player/MVP in the league, has to face his half-brother and the Celtics in the Finals.
    Lots of Drama.............but I won't spoil the ending.

    Spike's a big Knick's fan. More likely the movie deal includes a trade to the New York. ;)
