After a long day of being LeBron James, the King is known to unwind with a glass of wine. But wine, like many great things, is to be shared. And James, known sharer on the court, is teaching his two oldest sons about another game in addition to basketball: wine.
James told USA Today’s Josh Peter that he lets his kids have a taste of whatever he’s having. And while he expects blowback, he’s willing to take the blame.
“Yeah, that’s how mature they are,’’ he said Tuesday after the Los Angeles Lakers’ practice at the team’s training facility.
“They’ll be driving next week, too,’’ James added with a chuckle while drawing laughter from the media.
James said his children drink “whatever dad and mom’s having. Put it on me, though. Don’t put it on mom (Savannah). Put it on dad, put it on dad.’’
James’ willingness to let his children try wine at a young age isn’t all that rare, especially if one looks outside of the United States. But it will likely cause a few parenting debates, that’s for sure.
