LeBron James' sons are apparently older than their years—much older—in some ways. "I got very mature 14- and 11-year-olds. My 14- and 11-year-olds drink wine. That's how mature they are," the Los Angeles Lakers star and wine connoisseur said after practice Tuesday, per USA Today and CBS Sports. They drink "whatever Dad's and Mom's having. Put it on me, though. Don't put it on Mom (Savannah). Put it on Dad, put it on Dad." He joked that LeBron James Jr., 14, and Bryce, 11, will "be driving next week, too." (More LeBron James stories.)
