LeBron James‘ record is 3-6 in the NBA Finals and 0-1 against the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
According to Josh Gerben of the Gerben Law Firm and Darren Rovell of ESPN, the USPTO denied James’ trademark application for “Taco Tuesday.” The examining attorney decided the phrase was a “commonplace message” and didn’t allow the four-time MVP to trademark it.
Gerben reported that James’ company, LBJ Trademarks LLC, filed for the trademark on Aug. 15. One reason for the filing was to launch a podcast under the name.
James’ affinity for eating tacos on Tuesday has been no secret this offseason.
