After a sluggish first season in the Lakers purple dress, the season 19/20 began the better. With just over a quarter of the baseline series, the Lakers were alone in the NBA's Western Conference to clinch a playoff spot. Then the corona pandemic flushed the world and stopped most of the elite sport.

- Hopefully I can get some satisfaction from what our team has achieved this year. We had a new coach, a new game system, to be honest, I didn't think we would get to it as quickly as we got, ”LeBron James told a gathering press briefing yesterday.

The league can be ended without an audience

He is not alone, but the NBA's biggest fix star, LeBron James, looks forward to ending the basketball season of the year. With 19 games remaining of the base series, many reports suggest that the NBA will try to get the league clear with all the matches in one place, with no fans in place.

"If it's in the same isolated place, whether it's in Las Vegas or elsewhere, where we get the very best chance of staying safe and off the pitch, then I think we can discuss the matter," James said, continuing:

- When we get a better grip on this situation and people in positions of power start to understand the virus, then we can take the next step. But safety is always the most important thing and so we can assume that.

Like large sections of the US population, LeBron James has been quarantined in recent weeks. An unpleasant situation in which "King James" still found flashes of light.

- It has been a kind of blessing to be able to be here at home 24 hours a day. Being here with my family and getting the chance to appreciate it and be in the present, it's been pretty cool. Although I have missed the basket more than anything else, James concludes.
