LA Lakers Star LeBron James Flexes Toned Muscles and Reveals He's All Set for His 17th NBA Season
Basketball ace LeBron James is fiercely gearing up for his NBA season return. The Lakers star flexed his toned muscles while expressing his excitement over continuing the upcoming season of NBA.
Lakers star LeBron James still had 19 games left to play when the COVID-19 pandemic put the NBA schedule on hold. He was playing the best basketball season.
Now that the game is all set to restart in Orlando, Florida, James has been sharpening the saw and keeping his body in the best shape to set the court on fire.

ALL SET FOR AN EPIC SEASON
"Year 17 and still at it! Let's go!!" the athlete captioned the photo and added several hashtags including "revenge season continues soon" and "the kid from AKRON."
Should James win his fifth MVP trophy for 2019-20, he will not have a chance to make a case for it. However, the basketball ace said that he is fine with it.
Before coming to LA, James played for the Cleveland Cavaliers and Miami Heat for the first 15 seasons for his career.
In an interview with ESPN, James shared that he is not disappointed and that he is okay with not being able to control what will happen, saying:
"As far as the MVP race, I think that I've shown what I'm capable of doing. Not only individually but from a team's perspective, us being No. 1 in the West."
NOT EVERYONE IS HAPPY ABOUT IT
Before coming to LA, James played for the Cleveland Cavaliers and Miami Heat for the first 15 seasons of his career. He told ESPN that there had been a lot of conversation about whether he could have an impressive standing in the Western Conference.
All of the doubt was cleared when his team rose up to the top of the Western Conference. James said he was proud of how his team was playing and he was satisfied with his game.
The new NBA season is scheduled to resume on July 30. 22 out of 30 teams will be playing their first seeding games. Although many are excited about the game, the restart plan has been criticized by some.
A number of players employed by organizations are not happy about the return and claim not enough has been done to protect the players from the potential COVID-19 threat.
