LeBron James is offering up NFL takes during a special "The Shop" alternate stream broadcast of Thursday Night Football.

Early in the third quarter, LeBron had some pointed words for the Green Bay Packers related to the resources they have used to help Aaron Rodgers in recent years.

It seems LeBron feels that Green Bay should have invested in more offensive talent in the first round of drafts.

"If you have a transcendent franchise player like Aaron Rodgers...why wouldn’t you surround that when you got the picks to maximize what he can do?" James asked.

In the last decade, the only offensive player the Packers have picked in the first round is quarterback Jordan Love in 2020, and we know how Rodgers felt about that selection.

Green Bay has found some key contributors in the second round, like Davante Adams, A.J. Dillon, Elgton Jenkins, Eddie Lacy and this year's rookie wide receiver Christian Watson. Still, LeBron is not the only person to voice this gripe about the Packers in recent years.

Currently, Green Bay trails the Tennessee Titans 27-17 midway through the fourth quarter. You can catch the rest of the action on Amazon Prime Video.
