Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James owns 2 percent of Liverpool FC, so it’s no surprise that when he was asked who his favorite football players are during an Instagram Live broadcast, he said, “Every player on Liverpool…straight up!”

James, who admitted it was the first time he used Instagram’s live video feature, followed up his Liverpool remark with a few familiar names if you’re a Paris Saint-Germain supporter.
“Mbappé, Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo…those guys are legends. I love those guys. I love Cristiano Ronaldo. I love Neymar. I love Mbappé. Those are just a few of them.”
Like his Liverpool statement, which was made due to his business venture with the club, it should be noted that the three players James named are all Nike athletes just like he is. James is not only one of the best basketball players ever but he’s also a brilliant businessman.
I encourage you to check out the full broadcast, which features James playing cards and interacting with his family while answering questions from fans on a variety of topics. Find out what type of wine he enjoys, what NBA team he would never play for, an update on his signature shoe, and whether he misses Miami where he used to play for the Miami Heat.
On Thursday, the governor of California ordered the state’s residents to remain at home during the coronavirus pandemic. If the restrictions remain in place for the foreseeable future, we may see more Instagram Live videos from James.
