What are NBA players up to inside the NBA bubble in Orlando? LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers have been playing a competitive Madden NFL 20 tournament. It looks like the guys are having some really good time. The Lakers have clinched the top seed in the West, and this gives them enough time to rest and get ready for the deep postseason.
The three-time NBA champion shared an image on Instagram. It shows the current standings for the eight Lakers players in the Madden tournament.
From what we can see, Quinn Cook is the best gamer of the group. Cook is off to a 6-0 start with the Arizona Cardinals. Well, his team goes against Markieff Morris and the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 7. It’s a tricky game, and “players” better get ready for that.
LeBron goes with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and his team sits well at 5-1 at the moment. He handles Jameis Winston really well. The four-time NBA champion is having some great time despite his groin injury.
LeBron James does well in the Madden tournament
The top of the Lakers’ white board shows they use Madden NFL 20 which has the 2019 rosters. The Buccaneers don’t have Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski in this version.
Talen Horton-Tucker goes with the Minnesota Vikings and has a 0-6 record. It’s a horrible development for the Lakers rookie. He goes against Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and the Atlanta Falcons in the next one.
Horton-Tucker may not have a lot of success in the Madden tournament but he has a really good game in the bubble. He scored 10 points in 19 minutes in the game against the Houston Rockets. Lakers head coach Frank Vogel even plans to add him to the rotation.
The Lakers lost three games in Orlando and have three left on their schedule. The Indiana Pacers are next on their list, and the Lakers have to make a few changes to strengthen the offense. LeBron and Alex Caruso are listed as questionable. Anthony Davis is listed as probably for this game.
