Recently when the release of ‘All Madden’ was announced, LeBron took to Twitter and wrote, Love this ‘ALL MADDEN DOC’ short clip before TNF game! Can’t wait for Xmas to see the whole thing. Been a John Madden fan my whole life. And the game made it even GREATER!! ‘BOOM HE’S ON HIS BACK'”

LeBron’s excitement peaked when Fox Sports NFL released a short clip from the upcoming documentary on Twitter, where Peyton Manning and Troy Aikman reminisced about the legendary career of John Madden.

“My grandfather was a huge football fan,” Manning said to open the clip. “Obviously loved watching his grandchildren play. And my rookie year, you know, obviously we weren’t very good, 3-13, but every week he would ask me, ‘are Madden and Summerall doing the game Sunday?’ and I’d say, ‘Pawpaw, no they’re not. We are playing the Bengals, who are 1-9. Madden and Summerall don’t do those games.'”
