HBO will premiere “What’s My Name: Muhammad Ali,” a documentary about the icon tonight at 8 p.m. EST. The two-part series has a star-studded list of executive producers, headlined by four-time NBA MVP and three-time NBA champion LeBron James, who discussed his reasoning for making the documentary.

“The legacy that Ali left behind should be told for generations and generations,” James said. “He thought about the future of the world.”

The daughter of the icon, Laila Ali, boxing Hall of Famers Sugar Ray Leonard, Oscar De La Hoya, comedian-actress Amanda Seales, and executive producer Maverick Carter, were all on hand last week at LA Live for the Los Angeles premiere. James called the two-part docu-series “fascinating and captivating all into one.”
