Watch Dose Give LeBron James' Career the Broadway Treatment With 'LeBron: The Musical'
Ever wondered what LeBron James' career would look like in a Broadway production? Well on Mon. (Nov 21), media brand Dose gave Hamilton fans and NBA enthusiasts the perfect gift: a four-and-a-half-minute parody musical on The King's remarkable career.
The short production takes notes from the hit Broadway production Hamilton, and features NBA associates of James' like Stephen Curry, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh (all played by actors, of course) singing about the small forward's athleticism, and the many accolades he's collected throughout his career. "And every year more people came to see him filling the stands. Had to play in Akron’s stadium to supply those demands," the Kyrie Irivng stand-in sings. "He was so close to pro that he could smell that sweet aroma. Went and asked the NBA to let him join with no diploma."
LeBron's character later makes an appearance and quotes the infamous one-liner the now-Cleveland Cavaliers frontman proclaimed as he announced his departure to Miami back in 2010: "I'm gonna take my talents to South Beach. I’m gonna go join the Miami Heat," James announces with a melodramatic piano arrangement creeping in the background. "There’s a championship I haven’t won. I just can’t wait, just can’t wait."
