LeBron James has made it clear that he wants to start streaming some Madden NFL games – but he’s undecided as to which platform he’ll use to broadcast his gameplay. In a somewhat inflammatory post made on Twitter recently, James voiced his desire to stream and asked his community which ‘platform brand’ he should use to achieve that, prompting almost 4,000 responses in less than 11 hours.
