LeBron James Is Being Sued for Stealing Barbershop Show Idea

"According to the lawsuit, LeBron went and cut Adventure Enterprises out of the picture and created a ripoff show called "The Shop", featuring LeBron in a barbershop with his contemporaries, "while engaging in an intimate conversation describing cultural experiences".

According to TMZ, James and his business partner Maverick Carter, are being sued by a company called Adventure Enterprises for stealing their TV show concept called "Shop Talk".

They claim the idea was discussed over a two-year period.

Adventure Enterprises claims it confronted LeBron's people, and what they got back was an apology and assurances it was a one-time deal and wouldn't happen again.

According to TMZ, Adventure Enterprises is seeking an injunction to stop James and his company from producing any more episodes in addition to financial compensation.

ESPN reports that Uninterrupted sent a letter to the University of Alabama earlier this month, claiming the school's new series, "Shop Talk", infringed upon its idea for "The Shop".

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.

TMZ noted Comey specifically pointed to James' push to improve himself during the offseason and used to tell his staff at the Federal Bureau of Investigation that "we have to find parts of our game to make better" just like the four-time MVP does.
