CLEVELAND (AP) — LeBron James won’t let his two sons play organized football because of the sport’s health risks.

The NBA superstar said in an ESPN.com report published Friday that “only basketball, baseball and soccer are allowed in my house.”

James made the comments last week, before the Cavaliers played in Denver to conclude a four-game road trip. He has made similar comments in the past to the Associated Press about his sons LeBron Jr. and Bryce.

James often refers to himself as a football player when talking about making physical plays. He’s also a big fan and follower of the Dallas Cowboys, Browns and Ohio State.

The 6-foot-8 James was an All-Ohio wide receiver at Akron’s St. Vincent-St. Mary High School. This summer, he brought his boys to the Browns’ training camp, where they played catch on a side field as the team worked out.
