Top 10 takeaways from LeBron James' new sitcom

Wocka Wocka
Starz network is giving the go-ahead to his sitcom, "Survivor's Remorse." The Miami Heat star will serve as an executive producer of the half-hour show... The story follows Cam Calloway, a basketball phenom in his early twenties who is thrust into prominence after signing a multi-million-dollar contract with a pro team in Atlanta.

10) There is no truth to the rumor that Chris Bosh will photobomb every third scene

9) This should be a nice thing for Atlanta, which hasn't had a memorable pro basketball moment for over 25 years

8) Regardless of what you think of James, you have to admire the courage involved in launching an African-American sitcom without Tyler Perry

7) James' history, along with the title and premise, might lead you to believe that the protagonist left a hellscape of misery for greener pastures, but then there's that set in Atlanta thing to consider

6) So long as it stars Chris Anderson to play the wacky neighbor who is under FBI suspicion for crimes against children, Heat Fan is gonna love it

5) There's a strong likelihood that the show is going to coast until sweeps

4) I'm pretty sure we can blame Samsung for this, since it enabled the idea that LeBron can be funny

3) James is going to draw on his vast experience at making an unspeakable amount of money playing a game to make mass-market comedy

2) Five minutes of every show will just be guys heaping abuse at Mario Chalmers

1) If the ratings for the show start to go south, James is pretty sure that he can always just jump to another, better network
