LeBron James’ eventful off-season continues as he was in Los Angeles for the premiere of the movie ‘Hustle’. King James and his company Springhill which he created with Maverick Carter, co-produced the film along with Adam Sandler, who stars in it. The film follows the life of Stanley Sugerman (Adam Sandler), a washed-up scout who discovers Bo Cruz (Juancho Hernangómez), a terrific streetball player in Europe, and their fight to prove they have it in them to make it to the NBA.
Sandler stated that LeBron's company came up with the script and early reviews seem quite positive. The King looked very excited at the premiere as he was accompanied by his wife, Savannah James, and he was full of praise for her.
"She so tough!!! My goodness... Queen @mrs_savannahrj"
Savannah looked gorgeous at the event, and she posted a stunning picture on her Instagram before heading to it as well. We can expect to see her a lot more at such premiers, with her husband looking to dab into Hollywood as his playing career winds down.
James previously ventured into Hollywood with 'Space Jam 2' and he seems determined to make a mark on the industry. LeBron, who was recently reported by Forbes to have become a billionaire, has established a business empire that should keep growing as the years go by. The King will be hoping that 'Hustle' proves to be a bigger success than Space Jam 2', which had its fair share of detractors, and as we said earlier, this one has been received positively so far.
LeBron would be hoping for a similar bounce-back performance on the court next season, and so would Laker fans. They missed even the play-in tournament this season in what was a hugely disappointing campaign and will look to LeBron to lead a Laker revival.
