The deal puts Zihao as part of the marketing team for LeBron James' upcoming Showtime documentary series, Shut Up And Dribble. The title is a reference to conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham telling the acclaimed basketball player to stay out of politics and "shut up and dribble".

Zihao is widely considered one of the best League of Legends players in the world and will join James wearing his "Dribble & Carry" t-shirt in the documentary.
