LeBron James, who, according to, fancies himself a wine connoisseur, has revealed that his 11-year-old and 14-year-old sons also drink wine —  but don’t blame his wife, Savannah, this was all dad’s decision.

The NBA star said his children drink “whatever dad’s and mom’s having. Put it on me, though. Don’t put it on mom. Put it on dad, put it on dad.”

Savannah and LeBron James have three children: 14-year-old, LeBron James Jr., aka “Bronny;” 11-year-old, Bryce and 3-year-old Zhuri.

“Yeah, that’s how mature they are,” he explained Tuesday after the Lakers’ practice at the team’s training facility. “They’ll be driving next week, too,” James added with a chuckle.

Meanwhile, King James says he “Can’t wait for y’all to see Episode 2,” of his series The Shop featuring Drake because “It’s beyond what you can imagine,” he wrote on Twitter.

In a preview of the episode, the singer visited the baller at the barbershop for a candid conversation about knowing when it’s the right time to bow out gracefully.

“I think maybe one of my biggest concerns in my career is just to figure out how to exit gracefully,” says Drake. “I’ve watched people overstay their welcome, and I just don’t ever want to be that guy that’s addicted to the feeling of victory, addicted to the emotion of people digesting something that they love, and get to a point where I’m feeding them something and they’re just like, ‘Yeah…’”

According to LeBron, you have to surround yourself with the right people. “You can’t have motherf*ckers around you that don’t keep it honest with you and keep it real with you,” he explains. “You gotta have someone to tell you like, ‘Yo, either accept the lesser role, or you gotta tank.’”

Watch the preview below.

The full episode of “The Shop” airs Friday, Oct. 12, at 9:30 p.m. ET on HBO.

    I definitely do NOT approve of children drinking alcohol, and I don’t even drink it myself-HOWEVER-I just want to insert that we lived in Europe for 10 years, and it is not at all unusual for children there to drink wine with dinner. Again, I would personally never condone it, but it’s not at all unheard of in some parts of the world.

    His boys are young, but they are his boys. I don’t know if that was tongue and cheek because he also said, ““They’ll be driving next week, too.” Kids are curious and parents are the best teachers; good and bad. If he can demonstrate to his kids that mom and dad drink alcohol responsibly, kids will follow their lead. Luke 7:33-34 lays it out plainly. For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and ye say, He hath a devil.The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners! — Honest people can’t win. Most men who drink responsibly and love their sons sneak them a sip of beer or wine when their wives aren’t watching. That’s the weird male bonding. We also get up early and let our mini me take the wheel driving in a parking lot before they come of age. Like Bron said, that’s on him and not the wife. Glad his wife trusts him to be a man, husband and father.
