It's been a busy few days for LeBron James: he became a minority owner of one of the biggest soccer team in the world, his mom got arrested, he lost to the Bucks last night, and now the premiere episode of his animated YouTube series, The LeBrons, has hit the web. Check out the show, and it's possible stand against Miami-Dade's laws concerning pit bulls, for yourself.
The show comes off as something of a kid-friendly version of The Boondocks, and features multiple version of LeBron himself including kid LeBron, business LeBron, athlete LeBron and wise old LeBron. LeBron himself though only voices athlete LeBron.
The premiere episode features a talking pit bull (it's set in Akron, Ohio, where pit bulls are legal, unlike in Miami) confronting a talking lion. Though the show then takes a kind of sneaky ethical stand that no matter how scary pit bulls happen to be they don't deserve to die. Take that, Miami-Dade laws.
