They've apparently also gotten a taste of his wine.

Following Tuesday's Lakers practice, LeBron James spent some time with the media discussing how mature his kids are, and revealed that he shares wine with his sons, 14-year old LeBron James Jr. and 11-year old Bryce.

"Everything that they (his teammates) listen to these days, my 14-year-old and my 11-year-old, they watch, too", James told USA Today's Josh Peter.

James noted that he, not his wife Savannah, should take the blame for his sons' drinking habits. "My 14 and 11 year olds drink wine", he said. Is it really surprising to think that LeBron and his crew of future ballers might occasionally sit around a marble fireplace in their Los Angeles mansion and toast with a glass of red? They might just be too sober!

"Whatever dad's and mom's having", he said.

"Put it on me, though, don't put it on mom", he added. "Put it on dad, put it on dad".
