VIDEO: LeBron James, Barack Obama hilariously get into ‘big ear’ competition

Lakers, LeBron James, Barack Obama

Former United States President Barrack Obama was a special guest in HBO’s The Shop Uninterrupted, as he discussed a number of pressing national issues with the show’s hosts in Mav Carter and Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James. The tone of the conversation was generally serious, but there was, of course, no shortage of hilarious moments during the program.

At one point, Mr. Obama’s earpiece fell off. This became an opportunity to poke fun at his rather oversized ears, while also comparing them to LeBron’s:

Fair point from the former commander-in-chief here. His ears are indeed more pronounced as compared to LeBron, and the fact that the Lakers star is 6-foot-9, 250 pounds certainly has a lot to do with that.

All jokes aside, it was a great episode of the HBO Max program. LeBron, Obama, and Carter went into a deep discussion about the current state of the nation, as well as the issues that plague the United States today. The ultimate objective of the episode was to urge people to go out and vote in the upcoming national elections. The message was loud and clear: every single vote counts.

LeBron James has long been a prominent voice in the NBA when it comes to social issues. His latest campaign has centered around the upcoming elections, urging as many people as he can to make their voices heard by voting.

It’s an important reminder from LeBron that electing the right people into office is going to be key in eradicating social injustice.
