LeBron James Taking His Talents To HBO To Executive Produce Documentary on the Exploitation of Student-Athletes

After another legendary performance in his 15th season in the NBA, #LeBronJames is, once again, taking his talents elsewhere for the time being. But this time, the greatest player in the world is heading to HBO. 

According to a recent press release, James, alongside his best friend and business partner, Maverick Carter, will serve as a producer of a forthcoming project about the struggles of a student-athlete, titled, “Student-Athlete.” 

The project will examine “the complex rules of amateur athletics in America” and “how they affect uncompensated athletes and their families.” It will also highlight the hypocrisy and flaws of the NCAA, so says Steve Stoute.

“The NCAA blinded by revenue goals is turning student-athletes into full-time employees. This documentary is incredibly important as it debunks the myth that student-athletes are being fairly compensated by receiving scholarships and a valuable education. In fact, the demands put on these students by this oppressive system makes it impossible for them to get the education they deserve. The time is now to end this false narrative and reveal the truth of this exploitation.”

The film will focus on college basketball and football teams, as it follows the “incredibly important story about the institutional denial of basic human rights for these student-athletes,” Maverick Carter said of the project. “When Steve Stoute brought us this idea, it was a perfect fit for the kind of stories we want to tell at SpringHill.”
