CHICAGO — LeBron James is tak­ing his game to the sil­ver screen. The Mi­ami Heat su­per­star con­firmed re­ports be­fore Thurs­day’s game against the Chicago Bulls that he will co-star with Kevin Hart in the com­edy Ballers. Hart plays the brother of an NBA star who gets a chance to prove him­self at a fan­tasy bas­ket­ball camp in Mi­ami. James says the op­por­tu­nity to work with Hart was a prod­uct of their “friend­ship” and “mu­tual re­spect.” He says the role is “some­thing I could re­late to, as far as fan­tasy bas­ket­ball and guys want­ing to be bas­ket­ball play­ers” who “never had re­ally had the great op­por­tu­nity to be a pro­fes­sional ath­lete.”
