LeBron James is becoming a major player in Hollywood.
His company, Spring Hill Entertainment, a joint television and film venture with Warner Brothers, the four-time NBA MVP and three-time champion, already produces Starz hit comedy Survivor’s Remorse, set to begin its fourth season Aug. 20, and NBC’s The Wall. Now, the outfit is set to add another show to its catalog. According to Shadow and Act, James and business partner Maverick Carter are combining forces with HBO to put together a sitcom centered on the sneaker culture. The show, still untitled, will focus on two best friends and their wild employees at an up-and-coming sneaker shop outside L.A..
It’s fitting subject matter for James and Carter. James has a lifetime Nike contract worth a reported $1 billion and has 14 signature shoes under his belt. He also owns his own high-end sports fashion boutiqe UKNWN.
Since then, Griffin has averaged 21.2 points, 9.5 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 2.6 turnovers per 36 minutes without Paul on the floor, according to NBA.com. The difference is, however, the Clippers were plus-3.3 when Griffin was on the floor without Paul in 2013-14, and they’ve been in the negative since. It’s why they’ll have to be smart with who they put next to Griffin moving forward.
Pairing him with Pat Beverley, Lou Williams, Danilo Gallinari and DeAndre Jordan gives them enough shooting for the lineup to have a respectable spacing rating.
They will likely see similar results with Teodosic at one of the guard positions because he has the skills to take some of the playmaking burden off Griffin as well as the ability to spot-up from NBA range. If they replace someone like Gallinari with Sam Dekker at small forward, though, their spacing rating starts to dip under 50.0 percent.
