WATCH: President Obama Talks Shop With LeBron James

  • President Barack Obama is strolling into the barbershop for a conversation with LeBron James and Maverick Carter in this teaser for a very special episode of The Shop.

    Obama is a noted basketball fan, but despite the greeting to King James we see here, this Shop-talk will be getting a lot more topical than the Lakers' latest championship win, given all we're facing as a nation in the coming week.

    Obama's special episode of The Shop premieres Friday, October 30 at 9:00 PM ET on HBO and HBO Max.  It will be available for free viewing to non-HBO subscribers from Saturday, October 31 at 10:00 AM ET through Saturday, November 28.
