LeBron James Explains Why He Regrets Giving His Name to His Son

James, a three-time National Basketball Association champion with Cleveland and Miami Heat, excited high-profile stars and supporters with his move to Los Angeles - including West Coast rapper Snoop Dogg, who welcomed "King James".

The Hollywood Reporter released an exclusive snippet of the LeBron James and Maverick Carter's barbershop-set talk show "The Shop" on Thursday. And speaking of, guess who has a new show coming out on HBO?

"THE SHOP is exactly why we created UNINTERRUPTED", says LeBron James. One of his AAU games was cancelled earlier this week due to security concerns over the number of people who were packed into the gym, so that should give you a sense of the unprecedented amount of buzz surrounding him.

James says he named his son after himself because he wanted to set an example, something his own father wasn't around to do.

"I still regret giving my 14-year-old my name", James revealed.

And with his son now making waves in the high-school basketball scene it seems the NBA star is eager for James jr.to carve his own path.

"When I was younger, I didn't have a dad". Akron is that. @LJFamFoundation we've always done it big and it doesn't get bigger than opening day tomorrow (until the next thing we dream of ) I'm so unbelievably proud and excited to see my kids, my home, and the 330 tomorrow. Every parent has regrets, but it's not often that the name you gave your kid is one you have to consider.

Time well tell whether or not junior will be the basketball player many expect him to be. He did everything you're supposed to do in Cleveland.
