    ‘The LeBrons’ get more voice talent

    Niecy Nash and Drake are set to become part of LeBron James’s animated world.
    "The LeBrons," a web cartoon series slated to debut soon, will center on the characters that LeBron made famous in his 2006 Nike campaign: Kid, Wise, Business and Athlete.
    Niecy will play series mom Gloria, and she couldn’t be more excited about it. "When I was asked to be a part of this project I jumped at the chance! I’m a fan of LeBron’s and I was interested in seeing him in a different light, not to mention the fact [that] my arm didn’t have to be twisted to play the only woman in a male-dominated world! I love it!"
    Drake is also set to lend his voice to the cast as himself. We’re not sure how he’ll be incorporated in the show’s plot.
