Last night, HBO Sports aired it’s premiere episode of the LeBron James series “The Shop” which left no conversation unturned with its highly-anticipated debut.

Recruiting the likes of a credible panel of co-hosts that include Snoop Dogg, Draymond Green, Vince Staples, Odell Beckham, Jr., and more, the barbershop talk extended to issues of race relations, thoughts on LeBron’s career and even the motivation James has instilled in his children when they become faced with challenges.

Opening the topic of whether LeBron should be titled as the best player playing, Draymond Green says:

I think you should say that, I think you should believe that, and you should definitely let the world know that. I think ‘Bron, over the last four years, became LeBron James, and it wasn’t nothing to do with winning and it wasn’t nothing to do with stats. He found himself.

Discussing topics that have crossed over into music, sports, and politics, James shared a story about his upbringing and what it was like transitioning from his Akron neighborhood to his catholic high school, and being around all white people for the first time.
