  • Azaan أذان شاه Shah

    I am by far the biggest LBJ fan on this planet but I live in Chicago. I eat breathe and sleep LBJ. I have to deal with Bulls and Pacers fans. The constant MJ comparisons. Every fan knows this man is going to be the GOAT. Lebron PLEASE ALLOW ALL RESIDENTS OF THE US TO APPLY

  • MoreThanAGame

    Stop asking how to apply, its on the page and clearly written under the How to Apply segment. It really doesn’t get more obvious than that. If you were serious about applying you would have read the whole thing and not wasted other people’s time.

    • Pink Flood

      I was thinking the same thing and to add to that if they can’t follow the simple instructions above on where to apply why should they be hired anyway! Anyone that has the above qualifications have already submitted their info after they read the article and are not spending their time asking questions on answers that have been already given, smh!!!

  • Jaida Robinson

    I’m only in 10th grade, but I have the qualifications… just live in North Carolina :/ No Fair !

  • hillhoops

    meet most qualification, very little Spanish and live in California, in college and degree is communication, as a minor in sports

  • Samuel Dean

    Im not qualify to be your intern but if you need a bodyguard holla at me my name Samuel dean aka big Sam my Facebook name is Samuel BigBoi dean and my instagram name is mrdean21

  • Balu

    how much does does this internship pay? if it’s unpaid, my comment would be “what a CHEAPO!!” (and no, I’m not looking… I’m very happy with my current job)

    • 1627AndAllThat

      In many cases, internships many not pay. The internship is not about the money. It is about gaining experience which will be invaluable in future pursuits. The fact that the internship is with LeBron is payment in itself…

      • #TheRealKing
  • Bright

    Don’t know where to apply tho

    • R falcon90

      Neither do I

  • Joe

    Anyone else appreciate the irony of a guy who skipped college to go to the NBA requiring his interns to be enrolled in college?

    • 1627AndAllThat

      I am not mad at LeBron. What about Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg for example…

      • #TheRealKing

        Not graduating college and not attempting college are completely different. They created there businesses while in college.

        • guesswho

          *their
          …maybe you should consider attending college?

    • Vergil028

      That depends on one’s strong suit. For LeBron, his best way is going to NBA without college life because time and youth are the keys that he could improve himself.With his ability, he can challenge the players whom had graduated from universities.For ordinary ones like us, college has the better ensurance that we can develop in acdemic careers or more, I am a high school student and feel so sorry that I can’t attain the opportunity of the internship.But I understand the requirement, at least a high school graduated degree can ensure one’s capability to some extent :)

      • 勿忘心安

        I can’t agree more!

      • grammartroll

        *assurance

    • Rajan Subramanian

      reason he did that is because the cost of foregoing his earnings had he attended college was much greater than the earnings potential he had after graduating college

  • Taina21

    Hey James great game last night. My name is Taina I’m 21 years old. When I came to New York from Haiti in 2008 your movie was the first thing I watched in high school. You are someone special James your life story is the best story yet Written. I wish to meet you someday. My first Time going to Miami is in two week only if u could hear what I prayer for. Take care of yourself see soon u on Tv

  • June Gonzalez

    Hi Lebron,
    can you start a similar internship program for talented high school students? There are a lot of AAU high school basketball players who know the game of basketball, have excellent grades and want to pursue social media/marketing in college. Please start a program to keep these youth engaged in school and sports.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    School Counselor and Mom of an up and coming basketball talent.

    LeBron, you made my family so very proud you and your team mates. But I was most proud of you with your response during the after game interview when you said, “I don’t care what people say about you, you’re an intercity kid and shouldn’t even be there.” I shouted a minute. You told them, yes you told the world. What a man you are and a black man that we can all be proud of. God bless you and your family and thanks for sharing with the world who Mr. Lebron James really is.
