LeBron James is Reading a New Book For The Playoffs

LeBron James has a anew book that he is reading for the playoffs, apparently. Maybe this will help get the team back on track after struggling so much in their first game against the Portland Trail Blazers. As many fans expect a title this year, the playoffs have so far been a disappointment.

But this book seems like a pretty important read for everything that is going around in the world in 2020. To start the playoffs, James has started a new book titled: “The Autobiography of Malcolm X: As Told to Alex Haley.”

This is not the first time we have seen James start a new book for the playoffs. As we can see from his Instagram page, James showed us a photo on a bike where he can be seen reading the new book.

James went on to explain why he wanted to start this book. He gives some pretty good insight.

“I was reading to not only do something different, but to also take my mind off the game. Because during the postseason, everything is about the games. Everything is about the matchup and the team that you’re playing and the city that you’re in. I needed some moments where I could just get a different perspective — escape.”

This has become some sort of a tradition for LeBron James, who has made the playoffs almost too many times to count.

James has also talked about the BLM movement. He recently wore a hat that outlined how he felt.

“You know the situation that’s going on in Louisville, Kentucky, an innocent woman being killed by the name of Breonna Taylor,” James said. “[She was] a woman who had a bright future, and her life was taken away from her.

“There’s been no arrests. There’s been no justice, not only for her but for her family, and we’re want to continue to shed light on that situation, because it’s just unjust.”

Maybe this can help clear his head and get ready for the second game of the first round. They will be trying to get back on track after losing to the Portland Trail Blazers in a shocking upset.
