“Okay. Thanks. I know. Next game. Love you, ma. What’s up, Malik? Thanks, man. Oh, snap! Damn! Line up right here in front of me.” — Lebron James

“But everybody on the team plays video game–” — Lebron James

“And this fall, I’m gonna take my talents to South Beach. I will not just shut up and dribble. We in the White House right now. This is like… mom, I made it. I’mma do what makes my city happy. I love you. I’m back! Cleveland! This is for you!” — Lebron James

“Dom. What was that? And if you’re gonna be out here, it’s about giving everything that you got. And not whatever that was. Where’s your fundamentals? Everything in between these four lines is work. This thing right here. Come on, Dom. This isn’t a game. I need you focusing more… …instead of playing with these toys. Darius, chill out. You know I got full court vision. Ball. Show me that step-back move I taught you. You got this, son. In and out. Crossover. Step back. Come on, Dom. You gotta concentrate. Darius, show him the move. Yep. See, that’s ’cause your brother been putting in that work. Dom. Focus. You got basketball camp next weekend. Them boys gonna be coming at your neck. Seeing what you got. Oh, we quitting on each other now? Can’t be great without putting in work. All right. That’s my guy. Let’s get some work done. Enough of these games. Oh, man. Ooh, that’s my favorite.” — Lebron James

“We was just outside. I mean, how much more spontaneous do you want me to be? I mean, the kid keep telling me he want the best coaching so he can be the best player on the court. Like what? Yeah, I know. I mean, that’s great. I mean, but if I don’t push him, if I don’t stay on him, all the distractions–” — Lebron James

“Hey, son. What you doing? Is this the one you’ve been working on? Whoa. Who are these guys? Okay. Let me see a couple of those combo moves. Oh, that was nice. Ooh! Posterized! Is this not real basketball? Tsk. I am fun. Man, give me that. Show you how fun I am. Kick your butt in this game. Dang, I miss this, man. I ain’t… whoa. Were you trying to do my move? In and out. Crossover. Step back. Why… why he freeze? Man, can you fix it? ‘Cause I don’t want– hey, don’t blame me for that. Listen, son. Setbacks happen. Adversity is a part of the process, man. But if you’re passionate about something, you gotta learn how to push through it. You got me? Hey, I think I’ve got something that will cheer you up. I’m meeting at Warner Bros. about some high-tech movie thing. You should come. Cool? Oh, snap. Did dad just come up with a dope idea? Oh, what’d you just say? Did you just say, ‘please, dad, dab?’ Dab.” Uncle Malik will be here in 15. Let’s roll.” — Lebron James

“Oh, man. That was, um… that was something. Right, Malik? Listen, guys, I’m a ballplayer. You know, and athletes acting, that never goes well. I’m sorry, guys. This is all just… it’s just not me. And I can’t afford to take time away from the game. Malik. Nah, nah, nah. With all due respect, with all due respect, this idea is just straight-up bad. That algorithm is busted. It’s among the worst ideas I’ve ever heard. Top five, easily. Hold… Dom. No. You can’t go to that. Basketball camp is next weekend. Dom, you don’t have to be scared. You got amazing potential on the court, and I can help you get there. Dom. Excuse me, guys. Dom! Dom! I’m your father. When I say stop, you stop. Dom, do not get in that elevator! Come on, Dom. You know I can’t let you back out of camp like that. You made a commitment. You don’t mean that. ‘Do me?’ You think I go to ‘do me’ when I was 12? Hold up. Wrong floor.” — Lebron James

“Dom? Stop playing, man. You know your mom don’t like it when I don’t have you home for dinner on time. All this computer stuff is your thing, not mine. Dom? Dom! Dom? What in The Matrix hell? Dom! What’s going on? Are you okay? Dude, dude, dude. Just tell me what’s going on. We’re in the computer! You know I’m claustrophobic. How do we get out of here? Where’s the elevators? Hey, Siri, can you let us out of here, please. Siri? The computer’s black.” — Lebron James

Al G Rhythm

“I’ve searched far and wide for the perfect partner for this launch, and I’ve finally found him. Lebron James. Pete, he’s a family man, an entrepreneur, a social media superstar with millions of fans worldwide. Algorithmically speaking, he’s more than an athlete. He’s a king. Hmm? I know I’m just an algorithm, Pete. That’s precisely why I need King James. I’m stuck inside the Serververse. No one knows who I am or what I do. But that all changes today. Because today, Warner Bros. launches the revolutionary technology that I masterminded. Today, it’s my time to shine. Just look at this guy, Pete. Oh, he is the key element to this entire operation. Once I partner with King James and combine his fame with my incredible tech… I will finally get the recognition and respect that I so richly deserve. Lebron James, get ready.”

“Hello. I’m Al G. Rhythm. And as you might have guessed, I’m an algorithm here at Warner Bros. The studio behind all the classics. But now, it’s time for our greatest creation yet, Warner 3000. This will revolutionize the entire entertainment industry, and we want you to be on our team, King James. Now, we know you’re busy, but we can make it very easy for you. Because our brand new Warner 3000 technology will scan you right into the movies. Oh, it’s like looking into a mirror, huh, Lebron? Think about it, Batman versus Lebron. Lebron of Thrones. Lebron and the Chamber of Secrets. The possibilities are endless. You’ll be the king of Warner Bros. That’s the power of Warner 3000. Say yes, Lebron, and together, we’ll make mind-blowing entertainment forever.”

“Yes! Thank you! Finally, huh? Put some ‘spec on my name, right? Busted? Pete, tell me he did not just say ‘stupid.’ Who does this guy think he is? Huh? Rejecting me? Humiliating me? Okay. All right. I tried being a team player, but those days are over. I’m done playing by everybody else’s rules. It is my game now. Right this way, King James.”

“Welcome, Dominic James. Who goes there? Who dares disturb the great powerful Al G.? Look at your faces. You were terrified! Priceless. See? Nothing to be afraid of. Hello. Hi. Wow. King James. I’m a big fan. I just… I don’t know. I thought you’d be taller somehow. Hmm. Right? Dom, don’t touch the silver computer man.”

Dominic James

“It’s almost ready. I’m waiting on the right time. You’re just saying that ’cause he says yes to everything you ask. You’re not that nice. All right. Don’t’ get crossed. Oh! Gotcha! An open shot. We having fun. Who said I wasn’t working. In and out. Okay. I’m ready.”

“Um, just building my game. Actually, it’s basically done, but I… here. Just… I still have to figure out some of the player designs. Oh, those are people around the world tuning into my livestream. It’s pretty cool, huh? And this is how it works. You do combos and moves, and the better you do, the more people tune in. Crossover. Foul line! Posterized? Well, I put a spin on it. You can get style points. Power-ups. It’s like basketball, but better. You just play for fun. Remember fun, dad? Yeah, I put it in the game. In and out. Crossover. Step back. Let it go. No. No, no, no. No. No, no. Don’t erase my char… my entire character is gone. It’s gonna take me at least a week to rebuild this. Yeah, dad. Yeah, dad. Please don’t dab. No, I said… I don’t know. I think the algorithm’s pretty cool. I’ve got a question. Is it a heuristic algorithm or some kind of matrix variant? Yeah, I’m actually building my own video game. You heard of the E3 game design camp, right? Well there’s gonna be one next weekend, and I’m going. I’m actually looking forward… I’m not going to basketball camp, dad. That’s not what I want, dad. You make me hate basketball. I do. Everything is always what you want. You never let me do what I wanna do. You never let me just do me. Warner 3000.”

“Wow, this is cool. Yeah, I’m fine. Wow. This must be some kind of immersive tech like holography with haptic technology, or something like VR… dad, I think we’re digitized. We’re in the computer! Dad. Dad, chill out. Dad. Dad. I can see that. These graphics are unreal.”

Darius James

“So how much more work does your video game need? It’s been months. Like how you’re almost ready to tell dad about the E3 Game Camp next weekend? Honestly, I just think you should rip the band-aid off and ask him. That’s ’cause I’m nice. That’s big talk. See if you can back it up. Come on, let’s see what you can do. Yeah, okay. Come on, bro. Told you not to bring that out here. How does he do that? Watch me. Ball. In and out. Crossover. Step back. Shoot. I ball all day. Ow! Damn!”

Kamiya James

“Boys! Y’all can’t stay out here all day. It’s dinnertime. Really, Bron?”

“We talked about you affirming Dom more. Spending some unstructured time with him. Babe, I am worried that you are pushing him too hard. Have you thought about talking to your son about something other than basketball? Like how Dom built a video game. He’s 12 and he built his own game. He doesn’t need a coach. He needs his dad.”

Malik

“What’s up, Bron? Check it out. It’s for you. My dad got the new color one. Oh, and if it freezes up on you, just smack it really hard. Works every time. Let’s go get this win. Phew!”

“It’s called Warner 3000 and it’s supposed to be next level! This could be the new wave! Huh? Huh? Pretty brilliant. Whoa, Bron. Let’s not be too hasty here. Let’s just hear what they’re talking about. Dom, using the medulla oblongata. Hey, hey, I’mma catch you at the car. What?”

Lebron’s mother Shanice

“All right. My shift’s not over till 9:00. So tell Coach C I’m gonna be a few minutes late picking you up, okay? Good luck out there today. Hey. You know, if I could, I would be in those stands cheering for my baby. Hey, Bron? You forgetting something? I love you too, baby. All right. Go kill it.”

Coach C

“Hey, where Bron at? Lebron James! What the hell is this? ‘Oh, snap’ nothing, man. Get your tail on the court right now! Whatchu doing? Hey, hey, hey! Iso! Iso for Bron! Nobody else shoot the ball. All right, Bron, you keep that ball! You shoot the ball. Iso! Iso! Iso! You know what to do, baby. Let’s go. It’s your world. Damn! Damn! It’s all right, it’s all right.”

“Listen, man. I’m not even disappointed about us losing the game tonight ’cause it’s not about that. It’s about you giving your all, and you didn’t do that tonight. Lebron. You wasn’t focused. Getting your head in the game starts before you even put one foot on the court. It start before you even get to the gym. Lebron. This ain’t about everybody, this is about you. Listen, you’re the best basketball player I ever coached. You could be a once-in-a-generation talent if you focus on the game of basketball and not these distractions. You can’t be great without putting in work, right? You got the chance to use basketball to change everything. For your mom, for you for everybody who you care about. You want that?”

“Oh, hello. A new idea from the algorithm. I’m listening.”

“I mean, look at him. Look at that face. He’s speechless. He loves it. How about that algorithm, huh? He came up with the entire presentation. I should watch my back. Okay. Thank you. Thank you! That’s exactly what I was think– you’re saying what I’m thinking. This is trash, this algorithm. You’re cancelled, algorithm! So stupid. This is what happens when… I think we got a little Stevie Jobs on our hands. Wonderful to meet… so, is this a hard pass or…?”
