Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye do it again. Not long after releasing one of the most talked about sports podcasts in 2017 with the ‘Kyrie Irving – DEEP in thought 30,000 Feet High Above’ episode, they grace us with a must-listen conversation with Cleveland Cavaliers teammate and world megastar LeBron James.
Attempting to avoid talking about the very thing that brings them together, James sets aside the headband and sneakers and let us in on life off the court.
For 74 minutes, the Road Trippin’ crew aptly hops from topic to topic, managing to uncover James’ favourite cartoons, books, food, and films all while preserving an inescapable basketball element in the conversation.
On the topic of films, your auditory nerves tune up when James takes the floor to answer the question “what movie has made you cry?”; to which in the form of a seasoned Hollywood actor, he responds by concisely narrating the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air episode where Will’s heart is broken by his biological father who has resurfaced in his life after sixteen years of no-shows.
Having also grown up in a single-parent household and never knowing who his father was, James shares that every time he watches this episode he can’t help but shed a tear.
Sports fan or non-sports fan, this listen is for anyone.
Make sure your earbuds are well-adjusted for this one.
