LeBron James doesn’t let his sons play football
Youth-football participation is down – and though the reason might not be as simple as concern about concussions – LeBron James is contributing to the trend.

There’s no question football creates positive experiences for young people. But parents, including LeBron, are facing a key question: What does football provide that other sports, which come with lower risk of head injury, do not?
