Watch LeBron James And Drake Discuss Retirement In New 'The Shop' Trailer
A new episode of LeBron James‘ The Shop drops on HBO Friday. Ahead of the episode’s release, James has shared a trailer which finds him and Drake talking about retirement and the best way to “exit gracefully.”
“I think maybe one of my biggest concerns in my career is just to figure out how to exit gracefully,” Drake says in the clip. “I’ve watched people overstay their welcome, and I just don’t ever want to be that guy that’s addicted to the feeling of victory, addicted to the emotion of people digesting something that they love, and get to the point I’m just feeding them something and they’re just like, ‘Yeah…'”
“What helps with the gracefully bowing out is having people around you that was there with you from day one,” James replies. “That’s seen you from the beginning.”
“You can’t have motherfuckers around you who can’t keep it honest with you and keep it real with you,” the NBA star continues. “You need to have someone tell you, ‘Yo, either accept the lesser role, or you gotta tank.”
Aside from Drake, other guests who’ll apear in the latest episode include Maverick Carter, Ben Simmons, Victor Oladipo, Mo Bamba, and Elena Delle Donne.
The entertainers already have quite the legacy. Earlier this year, James opened up his own school, the I Promise School in Akron, Ohio, which he considers his greatest moment.
“I don’t have a ceiling to how much I can improve my game, and we as a foundation don’t have a ceiling on how much we can improve our community, to a point where we have a school,” he said previously. “We literally have a school. It’s not a charter school, it’s not a private school, it’s a real-life school in my hometown. And this is pretty cool.”
