LeBron James teases next The Shop episode with former beloved teammate
Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James is a busy man. Aside from preparing for the upcoming NBA season, with training camp just a few days away, he’s also promoting his talk show The Shop on HBO.
Created by Paul Rivera in 2018, The Shop features LeBron and his business partner Maverick Carter chatting with guests from different fields. The King has always been a curious guy, so expanding his knowledge to a multitude of subjects is something he likes to do.
With a new episode dropping on Friday, LeBron posted an Instagram Story to tease their upcoming guests, including comedian Wanda Sykes, rapper Jadakiss, tennis star Naomi Osaka, and LBJ’s former teammate Kevin Love.
Of course, LeBron and Love won a title together with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2016, coming back from a 3-1 deficit against the 73-9 Golden State Warriors. While the two forwards definitely had some spats, including Love calling LeBron a passive-aggressive person, they will forever be linked with each other.
Osaka, meanwhile, has also grown close to LeBron in recent years. The four-time NBA MVP even produced a documentary series about the tennis sensation on Netflix.
Both Love and Osaka are huge advocates of the importance of mental health among athletes and it’s safe to assume that they talked about it with LeBron and the other people on the episode.
With Kevin Love growing a bit dejected with his stint with the Cavaliers, spending time to chat with his good friend LeBron James might rejuvenate him for the upcoming season.
