LeBron James Sued For Reportedly Stealing Show Idea

LeBron James

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James is currently focusing his attention on the first round of the National Basketball Association playoffs, but now has something to distract him as he prepares for Game 2 against the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night. IN won the game 98-80 to take a 1-0 series lead.

Adventure Enterprises claims they pitched a show idea to LeBron called, ironically enough, "Shop Talk".

The story, broken by TMZ Monday, claims that James was approached by media company Adventure Enterprises to start a show that would feature he and other high profile individuals having conversations in a barbershop. At least that's what Adventure Enterprises is claiming.

"The company sought a payment eight months ago and were told their claim was ridiculous, and they disappeared", a source close to James and Carter told ESPN.

"I admire LeBron James", Comey said while appearing on Good Morning America, via TMZ Sports.

TMZ noted that lawsuit is seeking an injunction that would cease the production of future episodes of "The Shop" in addition to "serious" monetary compensation.

This recent suit filing follows UNINTERRUPTED filing their own lawsuit against the University of Alabama. Though Alabama elected not to halt production on the show, they did change the name to "Bama Cuts" to avoid confusion.

That led to a war of words between Alabama coach Nick Saban and the Cleveland Cavaliers forward, but now there has been an interesting twist in the case.

And now LeBron looks like a big dummy because he's the one who allegedly stole the idea in the first place.

A person close to James, meanwhile, told USA TODAY that Adventure Enterprises sought payment from the National Basketball Association icon's Uninterrupted more than eight months ago.
