LeBron James Won’t Let His Kids Play Football for Health Reasons

by November 13, 2014

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar forward LeBron James is experiencing the joys (and sleepless nights) of parenthood with his third child.

As for his new daughter’s two older brothers, no matter how athletically promising they may be, playing football (and hockey) is out of the question.

LeBron cites health concerns for keeping his kids off the gridiron.


When asked whether the reason for his decision was the health dangers related to football, James replied, “Yes.”


“Only basketball, baseball and soccer are allowed in my house,” James said.


In addition to being one of the most highly touted high school basketball players of all time, James was an all-state wide receiver at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School in Akron, Ohio. He stopped playing football after his junior season because of a broken wrist suffered in the offseason.
