Video: LeBron takes hard-hitting questions from children

Jan 9, 2012, 4:19 PM EDT

We’ve all got questions for LeBron James. Lots of them. But the ones that the children of Liverpool have for him are a little different.

“Are you taller than my dad?”

“Are you taller than a giraffe?”

And my personal favorite:

“Shouldn’t your first name be James?”

When in Liverpool — remember he is part owner now of the historic Liverpool Football Club, currently running a disappointing sixth in the table and in danger of being passed by my side, Newcastle United — James did a Q&A with some Newcastle youth that is pretty amusing. No questions about not having a ring or if his game really overlaps with Dwyane Wade‘s too much, just good ones about giraffes and favorite tattoos.

      Sorry about spazzing out there…..

      Anyway, I’m surprised they let Lebron around kids seeing how he commited the crime against humanity of excercising his free agency rights. And since he had the nerve of thinking his team is capable of winning multiple championships. Don’t they know it’s a bad example for children to be around a guy who fulfills his contractual obligations, follows the rules, and has self confidence?

      A monster like Lebron who plays with class and shows remarkable restraint when arenas filled with drunks are yelling at him for his….um…..well, I don’t know why they’re yelling at him; and media memebers prodding him with loaded questions designed solely to get a rise out of him. But he NEVER bit at any of it. How can we allow children around this guy?

      Drunk Santa from the XMas game in Dallas. That guy’s great! The guys in Cleveland burning jerseys in the streets like some crazy Anti-American Iranian? They should be rewarded as heroes!

      Lebron? Don’t they know these kids should stay away from this guy?
