Hours after labeling himself “football junkie”, LeBron James announces his grand return on multi-billion-dollar platform

LeBron James is all set to return to the multi-billion-dollar platform as the popular hit show “The Shop” comes with a second season. King James will return as a host and will be accompanied by guests who will talk on various topics.

“The Shop” was a critical and commercial success and it is understandable that it got a new season. LeBron enthusiastically announced the new season on his official X (formerly Twitter) account and hyped the fans for the upcoming show.

LeBron James announces “TNF in The Shop” return

LeBron retweeted a promotional video for the show posted on the official “NFL on Prime Video” X account. He captioned the retweet and hyped the fans for the new season. James wrote, “Yessir!! WE’RE DEFINITELY BACK” displaying great enthusiasm and excitement.

The fans were equally hyped and commented on the retweet. “The Shop” originally began airing on Amazon’s Prime Video streaming service in 2022. The show is an alternate telecast of the TNF (Thursday Night Football) and LeBron James, as we know him, is a big football junkie. So there was no perfect person to host the show other than the King himself.

James’ social media engagement over NFL game picks

LeBron James’ social media engagement grew drastically with his latest tweets on the NFL and the announcement of the second season of the popular OTT show “The Shop”. James tweeted that he would be doing his NFL picks for Sunday live on his Instagram. The tweet blew up and had over 650 reposts and 18.3 thousand likes.

James tweeted, “Will do my NFL picks for Sunday on IG (an acronym for Instagram) live before they begin Sunday but for tonight’s TNF game, I am going with Wash over Chi. Nevertheless hope it’s a great game. (Football emoji) junkie.” LeBron James has never shied away from expressing his love for football. He has often been seen attending football games and raving about football matches on his Instagram story.
