The Tylt

LeBron James: Athlete or Activist

LeBron James is one of the greatest NBA players ever, but his legacy is so much more—including the I Promise school in Akron, Ohio, now featured in the "I Promise" docuseries on Quibi. Tylt sports editor Dan Tran sits down with the award-winning filmmakers Marc and Dan Levin, who made an effort to shoot from the children’s prospective, resulting in a more intimate documentary chronicling the kids, their struggles and how James’ school helped the students overcome them. The Levins also shared anecdotes about the NBA star and the way he connects with the children on another level, whether it's hugging them during his visits or talking about horror films. 

Warming The Bench is The Tylt's premiere sports podcast. Dan Tran digs into all the fan insights and data gathered from millions of votes as he discusses the hottest topics in the game with the most influential voices in the industry.
