LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers were on top of the Western Conference when the NBA decided to suspend the regular season. The team had a 49-19 record, and this was one of the best seasons LeBron has ever had in his career.
The NBA had to make a decision after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for coronavirus. As a result of this, the season was suspended, and players stayed at home for two weeks.
The NBA Playoffs were supposed to start now, so LeBron decided to talk about the chance to see the remainder of the season canceled.
“I don’t think I’ll be able to have any closure,” says King James, “if we do not have an opportunity to finish this season.”
Canceling the season is the last scenario LeBron hopes for. This was a really great season for the team. It was also a challenging year for the team. Kobe Bryant died in January and Lakers players have hard time accepting the sad reality.
Everyone expects an update, but NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said there’s no timeline for a return to the regular 2019-20 season. What does that mean?
LeBron and his team are ready for the NBA season
There were several options for the NBA to take into consideration. Playing the playoffs in Las Vegas was a nice option, and even LeBron approved it.
Players are staying home, and some of LeBron’s teammates don’t have a gym in the area. He has invited some of the guys over, and they had a chance to work out in his gym. Anthony Davis did the same for his teammates.
LeBron and Davis worked really well together. This year’s Lakers team worked perfectly together. They had nice chemistry on the floor. Players still talk today, and they are trying to stick to the positive side of things. Although things don’t look really well at the moment, LA players have high expectations from this season.
Hopefully, everything will turn out well for the country. Every facility is shut down, and socializing is not an option now. Social distance saves lives, remember? Stay home and stay safe.
