LeBron James says the NCAA bill that CA governor Gavin Newsom just signed is going to change “countless” lives … and he’s praising the guy for coming on his show to put pen to paper.
Newsom joined LBJ on “The Shop” this week … and put his signature on a law that will allow athletes at California universities to profit off their names and likenesses without penalty for the first time ever.
Of course … the bill was STRONGLY opposed by NCAA officials, who said it would create an unfair advantage and blur the “distinction between college and professional athletes.”
But Newsom clearly disagreed … and LeBron was fired up to help give him the platform to make the public signing.
I’m so incredibly proud to share this moment with all of you. @gavinnewsom came to The Shop to do something that will change the lives for countless athletes who deserve it! @uninterrupted hosted the formal signing for SB 206 allowing college athletes to responsibly get paid. pic.twitter.com/NZQGg6PY9d
