Video: LeBron takes hard-hitting questions from children


We’ve all got questions for LeBron James. Lots of them. But the ones that the children of Liverpool have for him are a little different.

“Are you taller than my dad?”

“Are you taller than a giraffe?”

And my personal favorite:

“Shouldn’t your first name be James?”

When in Liverpool — remember he is part owner now of the historic Liverpool Football Club, currently running a disappointing sixth in the table and in danger of being passed by my side, Newcastle United — James did a Q&A with some Newcastle youth that is pretty amusing. No questions about not having a ring or if his game really overlaps with Dwyane Wade’s too much, just good ones about giraffes and favorite tattoos.

Between Hezonja, Elfrid Payton, Victor Oladipo and Aaron Gordon, the Magic have a nucleus of young players that has the potential to be a lot of fun. Even if they’re still a few years away from contending, they’re definitely going to be a League Pass favorite this year.
