LeBron James always talks about social issues without having a second thought on that. He signed a four-year contract with the Los Angeles Lakers, and now used the advantage of his Hollywood life. Yes, we’re focusing on the Student Athlete.
LeBron and Maverick Carter produced The Shop, offering top athletes and celebrities to talk about the hottest topic in today’s world. But, the duo didn’t stop here. LeBron and Carter joined their forces with HBO to premier the Student Athlete.
The documentary discusses the plight of student athletes that are often unpaid despite taking part of the billion dollar industry. This is a serious issue in the world of sports, and James decided to open the subject in his documentary.
The documentary will be released on Oct. 2 on HBO. The preliminary trailer is available on HBO’s Twitter.

This is a nice contribution to LeBron’s The Shop show, and he’s even more appreciated now that people get the chance to talk about important issues.
