LeBron James and Maverick Carter’s barbershop-set talk show The Shop is coming to HBO. It features James and Carter in conversation with Snoop Dogg as well as New York Giants’ Odell Beckham Jr., New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara, Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green, Los Angeles Sparks star Candace Parker and the very white and therefore token, Jon Stewart.
LeBron told the Hollywood Reporter, “This show is real, it’s candid and it’s the essence of conversation." He continued, “And we know with social media and text being the way people communicate, the form of conversation, actually talking, is kind of lost art.”
Another lost art is civility. That's why everybody on that set is an uber lefty, but I ain't mad.
Each episode will a different mix of personalities in the barbershop. James said, “When I was a kid, being in barbershops meant listening to adults talk about sports, clothing, politics, music, everything happened in the shop. It was so real and so candid; no one had a sense of, well I can’t be myself here. That’s how the Shop became an idea.”
Or maybe LeBron James watched the movie Barber Shop too mjch when he was growing up. Either way, kudos to LeBron James and all the other leftist black celebrity activist who will be invited into The Shop. Y'all better do something because many Americans of African Descent are #WalkingAway from the Democrat Party and once they do, they will have to start cutting their own hair.
