The man is just everywhere this week. First, he's in Summit County Common Pleas Court with a small battalion of lawyers, defending himself against promoter Joseph Marsh, who is alleging LeBron reneged on an oral agreement to produce a biographical documentary.
Marsh is reportedly seeking millions of dollars in damages, The Plain Dealer reported today. Marsh testified he loaned LeBron, and his mother, Gloria James, $100,000 in 2003, prior to LeBron being taken by the Cavaliers with the first overall pick in the NBA draft. Gloria James and Eddie Jackson, LeBron's father figure from his days at Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary High School, agreed to pay back the loan with 10 percent interest prior to the trial, The Plain Dealer reported.
However, the documentary still hasn't been produced and Marsh is claiming he has lost $5.75 million from LeBron's backout.
LeBron's legal team is claiming no contract was ever signed or agreement made between the two parties concerning a documentary.
An eight-member jury will decide the case.
If litigation wasn't enough, LeBron will also debut his new PowerAde flavor this week, the promotion of which led to this unlikely photo op.
Yes, that's right folks. LeBron James and NASCAR. Together at last.
The graphics job on Bobby Labonte's car is pretty cool, though.
