LeBron James Begs to Be on Travis and Jason Kelce's Podcast: 'Crazy I Can't Get a Invite'

LeBron James is pitching himself for an appearance on Jason and Travis Kelce’s podcast.

James, 38, took to X, formerly Twitter, on Wednesday to lovingly gripe about his lack of an invite to appear on the show, New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce, presented by Wave Sports + Entertainment, and showed some love for the NFL brothers.

The Los Angeles Lakers star — and fellow Ohio native — tagged the podcast’s X handle and wrote, “Crazy I can’t get a invite to join yall fantastic show!”

The basketball player jokingly asked, “Is it because you guys are truly the Kings of NE Ohio and I claim to be? Be honest,” adding a handful of emojis. James added, “Seriously you guys are AWESOME!!”


The New Heights account quickly replied to James’ message in a quote tweet and said the four-time NBA champion has an “open invite anytime” to be a guest on the show

One user joked that James may be “using” the NFL brothers “for clout” as the show gains listeners amid Travis’ rumored romance with Taylor Swift — and the podcast’s X account had a quick reply.

“Are we about to put LeBron James on the map?,” the account replied, referencing the viral trend where women try to convince male football fans that Swift, 33, put Kelce “on the map” over the last two weeks.



Previous guests of New Heights have included actor and Kansas City Chiefs superfan Paul Rudd, Jason’s wife Kylie Kelce and Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

Their mother, Donna Kelce, also appeared on the show in February to talk about both of her sons playing in the 2023 Super Bowl.

Jason and Travis discuss various topics on the show, including current events around the NFL, stories from their childhood and the goings on in their current lives. Since speculation began over Travis and Swift’s rumored relationship, the brothers have had fun with Swifties listening to the show.

Last week, the athletes dedicated a segment on the show to answering questions from the Swifties about football. The fun segment, called “No Dumb Questions,” was a hit with the fanbase. Questions from Swift’s fans included the definitions of a down and a field goal, and what the job is of a tight end like Travis.

After the segment, Jason thanked Swift’s fans for the opportunity to do something different on their show. “That was fun, thanks Swifties. Thanks for making that possible,” he said.
