While recently chatting with his close friend, businessman Maverick Carter on their joint talk show, The Shop: Uninterrupted, James opened up about his two sons and the love he receives from them.

When asked by Carter, 41, if "they care that you're a great basketball player," James replied: "No. I get sad too, I get sad at times like what the f---."

The father of three continued, "Like, Dad here, I know I'm gone a lot, but dad is here. Can I get a hug, you know what I'm saying? What's up, show me some love?"

"And I start thinking, Oh s---, I remember when I was 13, 16, I get it," James added. "He's driving, he's got his license. He's got hair on his chest."

As for his youngest child, James said, "And then my daughter, she loves me. Whatever the case, goes crazy for me. But her mom has another special little place for her. So I'll be sitting here, like, 'What about me?' You forgot about pops?"
