Lamar Jackson and LeBron James share at least one thing in common: they both love Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh.
Jackson is set to star in the fifth season of LeBron James’ award-winning HBO show, “The Shop,“ in which James and featured guests have honest discussions about sports, music, culture, and other topics in a barbershop setting.
Other guests will include Donald Glover, Quinta Brunson, and J. Balvin; Rams’ receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has also been featured in previous episodes of the show.
In a trailer for “The Shop,” the football great talks to the basketball great about a very unexpected common interest which is the incredibly “cool” coach, John Harbaugh.
At the start of the trailer, James tells Jackson, “It seems like Coach Harbaugh is cool as [crap]. Is he?”
And Jackson responds, “Yeah yeah, he’s cool. He’ll compete with us. We’ll be working out in the weight room. He’s standing next to you, you be like [looks down judgingly at his own weight].”
That’s some quality content right there.
Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson will star in LeBron James’ HBO show, “The Shop”
Some have compared the Baltimore star quarterback to LeBron James given that Jackson represents the most valuable player on the team (and in 2019, the league) and can singlehandedly lead the Ravens to victory.
Despite the fact that the two players exist in very different sport spheres, it’s a refreshing change of scenery to see Jackson and James sit and talk like old friends, bonding over a mutual appreciation of John Harbaugh.
Harbaugh caught a glimpse of the trailer himself and reacted to James’ compliment in the best way:
Who would have known LeBron was a huge Harbaugh fan?
The Baltimore Ravens and Los Angeles Lakers don’t exactly overlap — technically, James should be a Cleveland Browns fan after spending much of his storied career with the Cavaliers. James has also been known to support the Dallas Cowboys and, more recently, the Los Angeles Rams.
Yet the star hooper has previously praised Lamar Jackson for his “pocket presence” and “footwork” in games and has shown nothing but respect to Jackson over the years.
And we all know how he feels about John Harbaugh.
From one MVP to another, Lamar Jackson and LeBron James make for quite the entertaining duo. Add in coach John Harbaugh and you’ve got a trio of cool cats on the block.
