Lebron and Drake Talk Retirement On "The Shop"
On the 2nd episode of HBO and Lebron James interview series The Shop, LeBron sits down with hip-hop artist Drake. LeBron and Drake open up about their thoughts on retirement.
“I think maybe one of my biggest concerns in my career is just to figure out how to exit gracefully,” Drake shares. “I’ve watched people overstay their welcome, and I just don’t ever want to be that guy that’s addicted to the feeling of victory, addicted to the emotion of people digesting something that they love, and get to the point I’m just feeding them something and they’re just like ‘Yeah…’”
“What helps with the gracefully bowing out is having people around you that was there with you from Day 1 … You can’t have motherf*ckers around you who can’t keep it honest with you and keep it real with you,” LeBron James adds. “You need to have someone tell you ‘Yo, either accept the lesser role, or you gotta tank.’”
