Lakers’ LeBron James files trademark for ‘Taco Tuesday’

The filing indicates Lebron intends to continue offering his popular 'TACO TUESDAY' posts on social media and launch a podcast under the name.

James has made the term “Taco Tuesday” go insanely viral over the summer with his hilarious posts on social media. This recent move suggests that he has no intentions to slow this wave down anytime soon.
The King has repeatedly celebrated his Tuesdays this summer with his family and friends (he even invited Anthony Davis over one time) to feast on his favorite Mexican dish. His posts are highlighted with him shouting “Taco Tuesday!” and follows it up with a weird, but strangely contagious laugh.
According to the terms of his trademark, James intends to use the phrase for advertising and marketing purposes, particularly on social media.
Interestingly, the terms also include “podcast services.” Should we expect a LeBron podcast soon? Every Tuesday… while he eats tacos?
James has had his lengthiest summer in nearly 14 years after his Lakers missed the playoffs this past season – the first time James wasn’t in the postseason since 2005. With a full off-season of rest and relaxation (and stuffing himself with tacos), expect a reinvigorated King to have a revenge campaign this upcoming season.
On paper, the Lakers have once again launched themselves into the upper echelon of the Western Conference. With James at the helm, the addition of a top-5 superstar in Anthony Davis, and their deep enough supporting cast, the Purple and Gold looks to take a shot at banner number 17 next June.
