LeBron James Is Still Working as Other Players Turn to Gaming Amidst Coronavirus

LeBron James never rests, even during the quarantine. While other NBA players turn to gaming, LeBron could be seen lifting barbell curls and exercising in his home gym.

The 4-time MVP, in his recent Instagram stories, shared how he is keeping himself ripped during self-isolation.

The NBA recently closed its training centers in light of the Coronavirus. ESPN’s Tim Bontemps further confirmed that the NBA has banned all kinds of workouts for players. No league player can use public health clubs, gyms, fitness centers or other crowded spaces. Stars like LeBron James have a home-gym where they exercise, but not all NBA players have this advantage.

James has been active on social media, giving updates almost every day via Twitter and Instagram. He recently shared how he was very excited to play football at senior year, but his basketball buddies vowed to “beat his a** up” if he stepped on the field. Definitely, the NBA world is now thankful to James’s best friends for showing him the right path.

No surprise, but Ohio’s No 1 prospect in basketball was also a beast in football. LeBron James’ St. Mary- St. Vincent exploits include 60 reception, 1200 yards, and 16 touchdowns as wide-receiver.

Other NBA stars like Giannis, Stephen Curry, and Ja Morant are also biding their time while doing some interesting things. Giannis is waiting for PS5 to get out, which we totally get. Who doesn’t want to ‘PS5 and chill’ during self-quarantine? Stephen Curry, on the other hand, is challenging Dude Perfect in the contest of making a perfect trick shot in golf. Ja Morant, lastly, is busy making Tik-Tok videos and playing games.

Further, many NBA players have also donated money and vowed to help people during this coronavirus pandemic. The list includes Kevin Love, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Griffin. They donated $100,000 to their respective arena’s workers. Zion Williamson also pledged to cover arena staff wages through March. Meanwhile, Stephen Curry and Kyle Kuzma vowed to feed elderly/kids during this time.

LeBron James says he misses basketball and Lakers fans, laments that team was just hitting their stride

LeBron James misses Lakers basketball as badly as we do, but he understands the responsibility that he has.

One of the few benefits of the NBA being suspended is that LeBron James will get some much-needed rest before leading the Lakers in the playoffs — assuming the season will continue at some point this year, of course. However, James doesn’t seem to be enjoying his “staycation” at all.

During an Instagram Live Q&A on Thursday, James said that while he’s enjoyed spending time with his family, he’s disappointed that he’s not doing what he usually does in March, which is play basketball with his teammates:

“Am I enjoying the break? No. No. I miss playing ball. I miss doing what I do. I miss being in front the Laker faithful, I miss being in front of the opposing fans when I’m on the road. You know, we was at a point in the season where we were hitting our stride, you know, gearing up towards the playoffs, but the good thing about is that I’m getting a lot of family time. Time that I would never be able to get at this point in the season. But I love what I do, man. Everything is in place when we’re all doing what we gotta do.”

That’s probably the hardest thing about all of this: the unexpected factor.

Not having NBA basketball to watch from July to September is hard, but we know that it’s going to happen around the same time every year, and there are things that fill the gaps like the draft, free agency, summer league and — when necessary — baseball. This break, though, isn’t one that anyone was anticipating, even if we probably should have been. The fact that the break came at a time where the Lakers were playing their best basketball in almost 10 years has only made things harder to cope with.

The good news is that we have some control over if and when the NBA will return with how seriously we take the challenge of self-quarantining. If everyone does their part to “flatten the curve,” the likelihood of James and Anthony Davis taking the court again by the summer will raise substantially.

The King is doing it — you can too.
