On Thursday, Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti announced that the current lockdown of the city due to the novel coronavirus will be taken even further.

In fact, Garcetti has ordered that all businesses that require workers to be present must stop operations by 11:59 p.m. Friday.

This new measure is known as the “Safer at Home” public order.

Shortly after the news broke, Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James took to social media to reflect on the news.

This new order from the local government comes on the heels of a report that two members of the Lakers had tested positive for the illness.

It is still unclear which two players have tested positive.

Hopefully, this new way of life in Los Angeles will help inhibit the spread of the highly contagious disease.

While L.A. has already been on partial lockdown since late last week, this new stage of the process will surely be far more drastic.

As James says in his tweets, what matters most right now is that people stay safe.

Hopefully, this lockdown succeeds in doing just that.

Los Angeles Lakers guard/forward LeBron James shot an Instagram Live video Thursday during his self-quarantine due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Among other notable moments, James said the following about basketball, Lakers fans and his team’s status when the season was suspended March 11.

“I miss playing ball,” James said per Mark Medina of USA Today. “I miss doing what I do. I miss being in front of the Laker faithful. I miss being in front of the opposing fans when I’m on the road. We were at a point in the season where we were hitting our stride and gearing up for the playoffs.”

The Lakers sit 49-14 and first in the Western Conference. They have won 11 of their last 13 and already own a playoff berth.

As for what James is doing in his downtime, the four-time NBA MVP noted that he’s watching highlights of some all-time athletic greats:

James, his teammates and the rest of the Lakers staff is under self-quarantine after two unnamed players tested positive for the coronavirus. News that the state of California is now under a mandatory stay-at-home order soon followed.

That order will last through Sunday, April 19, so James may have more time on his hands. On that note, he hinted at the possibility of giving B/R Kicks a tour of his sneaker closet:

The 16-time All-Star is currently the league’s leader in assists per game this season in addition to averaging 25.7 points and 7.9 rebounds.
