LeBron James Admits 1 'Regret' He Has With His Son, LeBron Jr.

By all accounts, LeBron James is very involved in the lives of his three children. He's frequently seen watching his two boys play basketball, and his young daughter was often in attendance at Cavs games.

LeBron seems like a very good dad, but he did admit he has one regret. It involves his oldest son LeBron Jr.

In an upcoming episode of his UNINTERRUPTED series "The Shop," LeBron was asked about what he tells his kids about living up to him.

At that point, he admitted that he wishes he didn't give LeBron Jr., known as "Bronny," his name.

"I still regret giving my 14-year-old my name because of that," James said. "When I was younger, obviously I didn't have a dad, so my whole thing was 'Whenever I have a kid, not only is he gonna be a Jr., but I'm going to do everything that this man didn't do."

LeBron's full quotes are below.

Understandably, being LeBron Jr. can be a lot to live up to. But it looks like Bronny is handling it all very well and carving out his own path.

LeBron has clearly given a lot to his children and left them with "a blueprint" on how to succeed, as he calls it.
