LeBron James, in an interview released yesterday, confirmed his intention to complete the current NBA season while respecting the protection and health of all its protagonists.
The NBA suspended the season on March 11 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Two unidentified Lakers members were among the league players who subsequently tested positive for the virus.
“I definitely don’t want to give up on the season,” said James. “Not just my teammates and I want to play. There are many players that I personally know who want to return to the pitch. And of course, we never want to jeopardize the health of any of our players or their families.
“This is a pandemic that we have no idea. We can’t control it, “added James.
Since yesterday, just over half of the league’s 30 franchises have reopened their voluntary training facilities. But other sports are showing promising signs, with NASCAR resuming its season last weekend and baseball is working on some plans that could lead to an opening summer day.
