Bevo was on NBC’s ‘The Wall’ … the game show LeBron built

Posted May 17th, 2017


Here’s what we know: Bevo was recently featured as a trivia question on an NBC game show called “The Wall.”

Here’s what we’re still trying to figure out: literally everything else.

If, like me, you’ve stayed away from game shows for the past decade or so, this 25-second clip will raise way more intriguing questions than, “Bevo, a Longhorn steer, is the mascot for sports teams at which university?”


First of all, how is answering that question correctly worth any kind of prize? Participation trophies, amirite?

Secondly, who is behind this … Plinko meets “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” Oh, it’s LeBron.  Yeah, LEBRON FREAKING JAMES is the Executive Producer behind whatever that was.

Your move, KD.
