Not a week after Lebron James lead the Miami Heat to his first NBA Championship, Disney has announced it will bring the MVP’s inspirational story to the big screen.
King James follows the uplifting journey of a $100 million basketball player who abandons his hometown team to join up with other $100 million basketball players and overcome virtually no adversity to win an NBA Championship.
“This has all the elements of a truly inspiring movie,” says Disney topper Bob Iger. “It’s uplifting, heartfelt and full of hope for millionaires everywhere who’ve managed to avoid the high road. Really, we just wanted to make some money after John Carter…that Rich Ross turd.”
Disney is selling King James as the Rocky of basketball, only everybody is rich, there’s no struggle and in the end the team wins.
