John and Angel Whorton of Akron, Oh won $1.3 million recently on a new NBC game show produced by LeBron James. Being that LeBron is also from Akron he naturally decided to get out and and deliver the winnings himself. Lebron's new show,The Wall premieres Jan. 2 on NBC at 10 p.m. ET. The show is reportedly a combination of Plinko from The Price Is Right and “other game show elements.”
