Lebron Hopefully NBA Will Return

NBA superstar Lebron James has refused to rule out the return of NBA to complete the season. The NBA like many sports went into suspension as Coronavirus hit America like it did many countries worldwide.

LA Lakers captain Lebron James has indicated that seeing as National Football League (NFL) has already allowed their teams to resume training, the hope for the NBA is also coming back to life.

In some states, sports teams had been allowed to get back to training in small units and some states have gone as far as declaring that Sports is part of the Essential work and should be allowed to resume but behind closed doors.

Lebron James still Has Hope for Return of NBA

LeBron James reiterated Monday that he is hopeful the NBA season can resume, with the caveat that the health and well-being of players won’t be jeopardized by a return to play.

The Los Angeles Lakers star, speaking on the Uninterrupted platform’s “WRTS: After Party” show that was released Monday, said it remains his wish that the season comes back “sooner than later.” The NBA suspended the season on March 11 because of the coronavirus pandemic, and two unidentified members of the Lakers were among the league’s players who subsequently tested positive for the virus.

“Definitely not giving up on the season,” James said. “Not only myself and my teammates, the Lakers organization, we want to play. There’s a lot of players that I know personally that want to play. And obviously, we don’t ever want to jeopardize the health of any of our players or any of the players’ families and so on and so on.”

“This is a pandemic that we have no idea (about). We can’t control it,” James added.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver told players’ union members on May 8 that he was hoping to make some sort of decision about the future of the season within no more than a four-week window. By that time frame — barring any adjustments based on what’s happening with the pandemic — Silver and the NBA would be hoping to decide upon some course of action by June 5.

That said, there has been no definitive timetable from the NBA on when a decision would be made. The league is prepping for many options. Teams like the Milwaukee Bucks would be very happy if the season returned as they were having the best run of the season and were tipped to become champions of the 2019/2020 season.
