FOR THE PARENTS

LeBron James recently talked about his sons and their youth basketball experience. Pretty good stuff from the greatest basketball player in the world.

I let their coaches coach them. But right now all I care about is him having fun. Have fun, play hard, and play for your team, and that’s all that matters right now. He’s at an age right now where he doesn’t need added pressure from his dad, from his father. I’ll teach him when he gets old enough.

Dr. Eddie O’Connor, a sports psychologist in Grand Rapids, Mich., said he likes James’ approach.

It can really help protect his relationship as a father. There’s no way their performance (is) attached to his approval of them as their father.
