The NBA community has found its next burning question it needs answers to, and it is one that centers Lakers star, LeBron James
LeBron James is arguably the greatest of all time, whether some fans like it or not.
So far in his career, the King has won 4 rings, 4 MVPs 4 Finals MVPs, 17 All-Star selections, 17 All NBA selections, and so much more. He has been the best player in the league for over a decade and is only now starting to show signs of wear at 36-years-old.
When a player is that great, they inspire millions. And with his standing in not only the basketball community but our overall society as well, it’s fair to say that he can have an impact that’s similar to the great Michael Jordan.
Based on these facts, it seems the NBA community has a brand-new question regarding the reputation of LeBron James. And frankly, it’s far wackier than anything you’d expect.
Many in the NBA community are starting to wonder if LeBron James will start to influence parents to name their children ‘LeBron’
Oh yeah, you read that right. And yes, it was starting to become so popular, we had to write a piece about it.
LeBron is a unique name, to say the least. In fact, we’d be surprised if there was an athlete in the history of sports who was named that before the King himself.
But, with every new generation, the growth of offbeat names has only increased. So, given the status of LeBron James as well, we do actually think there are some kids out there named ‘LeBron’.

Right now, the closest person to being the second LeBron to ever play in the NBA is LeBron James Jr. himself. But, with time will there really be more athletes in the league with the same name? Or are we just plain wrong, and the name is just too offbeat for that?
We guess only time will tell.
