LeBron James appeared on the latest episode of the newly re-branded Open Run podcast that went live today as part of the Uninterrupted Podcast Network. And while the interview was nearly 90 minutes of very interesting, mostly basketball-related talk, one of the funniest moments of the discussion came near the end of the show.
LeBron responded by laughing, before answering with, “I only got 5 seconds, this isn’t fair? What comes to mind?…I don’t know man, JR is like a dolphin, man…You know why? I watch a lot of these… what is it called, Open Water? Or National Geographic, and dophins like, they’re really killers. Sharks are afraid of them. But, they gotta have a a group around them to become the best of their ability… And incredibly smart.”
You can listen to the full podcast below:
JR, of course, got married last weekend. While LeBron and the Cavaliers would love to have the free agent shooter back, James signed a 3-year, $100 million contract with Cleveland this summer that might make re-signing Smith a financial challenge.
But back to the subject at hand: is LeBron right? Would JR be a dolphin? Or another animal? (In related thoughts: Man, is the season here yet?)
