A parody of the Broadway smash “Hamilton” gave the LeBron James life story a musical twist, and King James gives the production two hearty thumps-up.
James says he was blown away watching it.
LeBron gives high praise for "Hamilton" musical set to his life. (And yes, it's fantastic): https://t.co/GlMgxUnE70

The nearly five-minute clip—which went viral since its release Monday—chronicles LeBron’s journey from his high school days, The Decision, and his triumphant return to Cleveland.
Per the Akron Beacon Journal:
“It’s great. It’s unbelievable, actually,” James said. “Itwas basically the whole journey, up until this point. Obviously they’ve done their homework and they were pretty much spot on. And the visuals were pretty cool, too.”
James hasn’t seen Hamilton yet, although he wants to. For now, this will have to do.
“All the different characters and different uniforms and different jerseys and things of that nature. I’ve done something right up until this point with my career to see someone be able to take the time out of their days to do something like that. It’s pretty cool,” James said. “I was … in awe just watching it. It’s pretty cool.”
