LeBron regrets pressuring son by naming him LeBron Jr

LeBron James Lakers

LeBron James expects Monday to be one of the greatest moments of his life as his LeBron James Family Foundation and the Akron (Ohio) Public Schools launch a new elementary school for at-risk children in his hometown.

The NBA superstar - who left the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Los Angeles Lakers earlier this month - is producing and appearing on a talk show for HBO called The Shop, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"I'm sitting there and I'm watching the game, and I feel my hands just start sweating, I feel my chest start sweating", James said. "I'm like, what is this?"

The three-time National Basketball Association champion also spoke about how watching his sons, Bryce and LeBron James Jr.

It is times like these where you have to feel bad for the kids of celebrity parents. For me to be in this position now, the excitement that I have to be a Laker, I'm happy to be apart of it because I believe the Lakers is a historical franchise, we all know that, but it's a championship franchise and that's what we're trying to get back to. I love that he knows all of Bronny's teammates and goes full "basketball dad" at these games, going insane in the stands and cheering for his son's team.

The I Promise School employs over 40 staff members who serve to accomodate for the school's longer days and school year. The first episode - which will feature Snoop Dogg, Jon Stewart, the Golden State Warriors' Draymond Green and Los Angeles Sparks' Candace Parker, and New York Giants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara - will debut August 28 at 11 PM.
