With a little bit, or a lot, of spare time on his hands, LeBron James hopped on the Road Trippin Podcast with his Cleveland Cavaliers teammates Channing Frye and Richard Jefferson and Lakers host Allie Clifton to talk basketball. The quartet specifically spoke about continuing the season once the coronavirus threat is limited.
“So what happens when a guy who is tested positive for corona and you’re out there on the floor with him and it’s a loose ball?,” was one of the statements from King James of adjusting to a Corona basketball world.
He would also speak about playing in front of no fans, a concept he is cold on still. What is the word ‘sport’ without ‘fan’?” James asked. “There’s no excitement. There’s no crying. There’s no joy. There’s no back-and-forth.
“So to get back on the floor, I would love it. I’m not going to sit here and say nothing. Like, if it’s get out there and get back on the floor 5-on-5 … but like, we can do that in scrimmages. Let’s just go to each other’s practice facility, put out a camera, just scrimmage and livestream it. … I just don’t know how we can imagine a sporting event without fans. It’s just, it’s a weird dynamic.”
Other topics during his time on the podcast included how the season should resume, which he believes going straight to the playoffs isn’t possible. The release of the documentary on the 1990’s Chicago Bulls dynasty, having to get his body right after it was rounding into form, Space Jam 2 and more.
