LIFE IN THE ORLANDO BUBBLE

The basketball players are living within the Orlando bubble and have different takes on the situation. For LeBron James, he is learning to adapt to the “empty gym” but still missing his family.

In his interview with ESPN, the Lakers star shared that his team plays their best regardless if it is a playoff game or not, and work as a team in doing so.

The athlete also explained that getting doubles is a luxury and as long as they make good court spacings, they will have the capacity to score. The Lakers have seen three straight losses since the NBA restarted.

TRYING TO ADAPT

Despite not having the privilege of getting their own home-court, James has grown more comfortable having games in an empty gym with no fans.

The Lakers star was left with 19 games when the season was paused and is in the middle of competing for a playoff slot.

“You have to really love basketball to be here,” he shared as the motivation given by usual cheering fans is no longer there. James credited his fans for the constant support, but his love of the game remains with or without an audience.

MISSING HIS FAMILY

Despite adapting to the Orlando bubble, the NBA star could not help but miss his family whom he had to be away from for months. He said:

“I miss the hell out of my family. My wife, my kids, my mother, and so on. It’s a huge challenge.”

As James has to live in Disney World with the rest of the NBA athletes, he can only see his wife, Savannah, and kids, Zhuri, Bryce, and Bronny through FaceTime.
