LeBron James is mostly known for being successful on the court, but James is now expanding his success to the TV world as well.
LeBron serves as the host and producer of a series on The Uninterrupted called The Shop. After winning an Emmy last year for his documentary on Muhammad Ali, LeBron now has a second Emmy after The Shop won an award.
The King of the NBA world has repeatedly emphasized his drive to be more than just a basketball player, and his awards as a producer and host prove this fact. With James being incredibly active on social media, he couldn’t help but feel hyped after winning the award.

LeBron James Joins Kobe Bryant & Kevin Durant As NBA Players To Win Emmy As A Producer
NBA players aren’t known for their work as producing award winning series, but lately there have been a few more of them. Kobe Bryant was the first to take up the mantle. His short movie “Dear Basketball” was sensational on its way to winning an Emmy Award.
The film talked about Kobe’s love for the game, and how he had to walk away from it as his body started failing him. It was emotional and deserved the award.

LeBron’s series was more of a casual, relaxed, “sit down and talk ball” kind of production. The show won the award for “Outstanding Edited Sports Series.” LeBron’s takes on the show are always entertaining. It’s function is always to be a casual show that fans can tune into at anytime.
