LeBron James Agrees to Deal to Become Ambassador for DraftKings

Publication date:

LeBron James teamed up with the renowned American sports betting and daily fantasy sports contest company DraftKings. The NBA legend will use American football picks and other important tentpole events to express his intense love of sports.

James is to collaborate with DraftKings to share his extensive love of sports and to offer his opinions on American football but also other sports. As part of a multi-year deal, the all-time NBA great will work with the Boston-based sports betting giant as a talent ambassador for American football and a few major tentpole events.

“Welcoming one of the most influential and greatest athletes of all time, LeBron James, to the DraftKings family is an absolute honor and privilege. We look forward to working with a passionate sports fan who shares the same competitive mindset that echoes throughout the walls at DraftKings while delivering exciting engagement opportunities to our customers and his loyal fanbase for years to come,” one of the best betting sites in the US and beyond posted on social media.

James Has Been Using IG Live to Predict NFL Games

So, we can anticipate hearing a lot more of James’ NFL predictions. The basketball star would periodically go on Instagram Live this season to analyze the NFL action that was coming up. Even though the four-time NBA MVP isn’t a professional handicapper, he occasionally gave off the impression that he was. Of course, there were better weeks but there were worse weeks too.

As long as he isn’t placing bets or providing analysis on NBA or WNBA games, James is free to be paid directly by sportsbooks not contradicting the NBA’s collective bargaining agreement. Beyond the generals, it’s unclear how James and DraftKings will work together once the 2024 season begins or how his weekly selections will be displayed.

James is a well-known American football enthusiast who participated in high school football. He has often shown his passion for the sport and his continued interest in the game. Without a doubt, a sizable number of fans will be keen to hear his thoughts on the events taking place on the gridiron.
