LeBron James and LIFEWTR, a premium bottled water company, have announced a multi-year relationship that combines James’ love of storytelling, community, and empowerment with LIFEWTR’s goal of enabling people to thrive.

“I’ve always loved LIFEWTR and how every detail – from the original art showcased on its bottles to the brand’s efforts to champion diverse voices – serves a bigger purpose,” said LeBron James. “LIFEWTR is all about inspiring creativity, and I want the kids in my I PROMISE program and people everywhere to be inspired by the exciting work we’ll do together.”

Since the brand’s launch in 2017, LIFEWTR has taken pride in offering customers reviving hydration in the manner intended by nature. It does this using its reverse osmosis technology to remove contaminants to produce pure, pristine water and incorporate electrolytes for a smooth, crisp flavor. The launch of specific content will be a part of the new LIFEWTR partnership with LeBron, which will be unveiled later this year.

“LeBron James’ unwavering dedication to uplifting individuals and communities mirrors our mission at LIFEWTR to help people thrive,” says Zach Harris, Vice President, Water Portfolio at PepsiCo Beverages North America. “We are thrilled to work with him to further the LIFEWTR brand’s commitment to helping underrepresented voices flourish.”

His partnership with LIFEWTR marks the next stage in James’ continuous engagement with PepsiCo. The collaboration’s evolution supports the commitments PepsiCo has made to its Racial Equality Journey. Like LIFEWTR, PepsiCo has a track record of assisting diverse communities. Through a $400 million and $172 million investment over five years, the PepsiCo Racial Equity Journey seeks to elevate diverse voices within the organization and among its supply chain partners. In the communities, it serves while also assisting in removing enduring racial barriers for Black and Hispanic Americans.

LeBron James Say Brittney Griner Should Question Whether She Wants To Come Home

LeBron James suggested WNBA star Brittney Griner should question if she ever wants to return back to the United States after being detained in Russia for over 120 days. 

During a promo for his HBO show, The Shop, King James says “How can she feel like America has her back?”  He then added, “I would be feeling, ‘do I even want to go back to America?’” 

 The Phoenix Mercury center has been held in Moscow since February as she’s accused of having under a gram of cannabis oil in her luggage when she was arrested at the airport.

The two-time Olympic gold medalist faces charges that could carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison. Griner says she’s “terrified” she may be held in Russian custody “forever.” She revealed in a handwritten letter sent to the White House in which she pleaded for her freedom.

“As I sit here in a Russian prison, alone with my thoughts and without the protection of my wife, family, friends, Olympic jersey, or any accomplishments, I’m terrified I might be here forever.”

Ginger, 31, continued, “I realize you are dealing with so much, but please don’t forget about me and the other American Detainees. Please do all you can to bring us home. I voted for the first time in 2020 and I voted for you.”

The Kremlin has been blamed for using Griner as a political pawn while the State Department has said the American basketball center was “wrongfully detained. The White House says the POTUS  is committed to bringing home all Americans who are imprisoned overseas.

James, 37, later went to social media to explain his comments on Griner.

“My comments on ‘The Shop’ regarding Brittney Griner wasn’t knocking our beautiful country,” he tweeted. “I was simply saying how she’s probably feeling emotionally along with so many other emotions, thoughts, etc inside that cage she’s been in for over 100+ days! Long story short #BringHerHome”

Lil Durk Dismisses Drake And J. Cole On The Basketball Court After Getting The LeBron James Co-Sign

Lil Durk has had a highly successful last few years and his confidence matches the accolades. While his mettle in music isn’t to be denied, his skills on the basketball court are also well-documented as well. After an April episode of The Shop on HBO, he received one of the biggest co-signs any non-professional basketball player can receive in the form of praise from LeBron James. “Lil Durk can hoop,” King James said. “He can hoop for real. Man, he [at] Lifetime hooping. He got a f****** cannon, too. He got a peel, and he look like a mothaf*cker that can [ball].”

https://www.tmz.com/videos/2022-06-15-061522-lil-durk-1441473/

TMZ had a second to speak with “The Voice” at LAX this past Wednesday (June 15) and Durk took it a step further by calling out two of the most prominent figures in his primary sport, who also have an affinity for basketball themselves: three-time SBL champion Drake and new professional hooper J. Cole.

“[Drake’s] my dog, but he ain’t gon’ play us though,” the “Refugee” rapper said. “[LeBron] knows I’m the best ever. Tell your f*cking children.” He had similar energy for Cole. “I know I can, I just told you that I’m the best ever,” he affirmed. “[That’s] my boy, but I’d dunk that sh*t on [J. Cole].” Time will tell if these matchups will ever occur, but Lil Durk doesn’t seem too worried about how they will go.

Check out Durk’s boastful comments to TMZ above.

SOURCE SPORTS: LeBron James Says of the Two Finals Teams He Would Play for the Golden State Warriors

LeBron James must really want to play with Stephen Curry before his career is over. When asked what NBA superstar he wanted to play with, James didn’t hesitate with his answer. Off the rip, he said, “Steph Curry.”

He’s back at giving hints of joining the Warrior dynasty. In the preview trailer for the upcoming episode of HBO’s The Shop, James said the Warriors are the one remaining playoff team he’d join.

“It’d be Golden State. I would love getting into a pissing match with Draymond [Green]; I love when somebody cusses me out,” James said.

Prior to LeBron making this statement about joining Golden State, he appeared on The Shop and said he wanted to play with Steph. He even gave his reason why.

“In today’s game, s–t, there some motherf–kers in today’s game, but Steph Curry,” James said on The Shop. “Steph Curry is the one that I want to play with for sure in today’s game. … I love everything about that guy. Lethal. Steph, when he get out his car, you better guard him right from the moment he pulls up to the arena. Soon as he get out of his car, you better guard his ass.”

Could you imagine LeBron and Steph Curry on the same squad? The best shooter ever with arguably the best player ever? Well, Chef Curry couldn’t imagine it either. He quickly shut down the idea of him and James teaming up.

“Well, he’s got his wish,” Curry said on 95.7 The Game (h/t NBC Sports). “When he’s the captain, he’s picked me the last two All-Star Games. I don’t know if that suffices, but I’m good right now. Whenever you get the interest or curiosity of what it would be like to play with the MVP-caliber dude that he is, one of the greatest of all time, it’s cool. That’s amazing. We all can live in that fantasy world.”

SOURCE SPORTS: LeBron James Could Host His Own Podcast in the Future

Ruffles Ruffles DNA TVC LeBron Image

Whenever LeBron James decides to retire from the NBA, his off-the-court legacy has the potential to be just as great. He’s already the NBA’s first active billionaire player. He’s an actor, owner of the SpringHill Company, and founder of the I Promise charter school.

LeBron James, the 37-year-old “washed king who last year averaged about 27 points last year,” is a man of many hats, and he might add a new one to his hat collection. No, I’m not talking about the Yankee Fitted he’s accustomed to wearing. LeBron, one of all-time greatest NBA players, could host his podcast show.

The four-time NBA Champion took it to Twitter to announce his interest in Podcasts. He said he plans to guest appear on “someone podcast soon.” He also hinted that he could potentially start his show.

It’s uncertain who’s show LBJ is planning to be on, but a few of his NBA peers are in that space. Former NBA shooting guard co-host a podcast show with Tommy Alter called, The Old Man and the Three. Current NBA player, who is currently playing in the NBA Finals, Draymond Green, has a show called The Draymond Green Show. Former NBA Champions Stephen Jackson and Matt Barnes co-host the award-winning All Of The Smoke podcast, and you can’t leave out Knuckleheads with NBA veterans Quentin Richardson and Darius Miles.

If we had to predict that LeBron would be a good show host, watch a few episodes of HBO’s The Shop: Uninterrupted. The Shop is a talk show hosted by LB and businessman Maverick Carter.

Since 18, Lebron has been entertaining the world. At 37, it doesn’t seem like he plans to slow down anytime soon.
