LeBron James Answers Questions From British Children For Liverpool TV (VIDEO)

Despite being the second-most hated man in the NBA, LeBron James certainly seems to have a soft side.

During a visit to England in October to take in a Liverpool FC soccer game -- a team which he owns a stake in -- James sat down to take some questions from some young students at Our Lady of Pity Primary School.

The questions ranged from who his most famous friend is (Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony and Jay-Z) to whether he was taller than a giraffe (no). On the whole the segment was fun and showed off a side of the All-Star that we've rarely seen since he decided to embrace his "villain" role. But, admittedly, it must have been refreshing for James to be barraged by questions and have none of them relate to championships or his performance in the fourth quarter.
