In fact, Obama reportedly counseled LeBron on how to make statements about social justice and police brutality while inside the NBA Bubble.
LeBron also tweeted about the show — saying, “It was such an honor. My President giving us the perspective and motivation we need right now. GO VOTE!!!”
The Obama episode dropped on Friday, Oct. 30 on HBO and HBO Max.
The network is also touting that the special was produced under COVID-19 guidelines.
Producers are keeping a tight lid on the content so far — but HBO’s exec Vice President Nina Rosenstein gave this teaser — “Their conversation with President Obama is candid, compelling and urgently relevant.”
