His Mogul: LeBron James Gets Dapper for Sports Illustrated SportsPerson of the Year, Inks Deal with HBO and Antoine Fuqua
If making this year's SportsPerson of the Year wasn't enough get this; LeBron and his longtime business partner and friend, Maverick Carter, signed a deal with Antoine Fuqua to produce a multi-part documentary about boxing legend Muhammad Ali for HBO. The duo parlayed their SpringHill Entertainment to pay homage to the GOAT.
“It’s tough to put into words how much it means to me to be a part of this project honoring the legacy and telling the extremely important story of the great Muhammad Ali. He transcended sports and used his platform to empower people, which paved the way for all athletes and people of every race and gender that came after him, myself included. It’s important that his story continues for generations to come, and it’s an honor for SpringHill Entertainment and me to be a part of this.”
