LeBron James Tells NBA He ‘Won’t Play’ If Virus Forces Empty Stadium Games

Fears of a global pandemic are at an all time high in 2020 as a deadly and novel strain of coronavirus continues to spread within the international community.

The virus, which appears to have originated in Wuhan, China, has absolutely devastated the Far East, with a vast majority of the 100,000 infections and over 3,000 deaths coursing on the Asian subcontinent.

In the United States, the death toll remains under two dozen, likely due in no small part to our nation’s preparedness protocol and the American medical field’s wicked efficiency.  This hasn’t stopped a glut of conjecture and worry from fomenting stateside, however, and the NBA has even suggested that some games could be played sans fans should the viral outbreak continue to evolve.

LeBron James said he “ain’t playing” if there are no fans in the stadium due to concerns about the coronavirus.

The Los Angeles Laker spoke with reporters after the team’s win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday at the Staples Center.

“We play games without the fans?” James asked incredulously. “Nah, it’s impossible.

“I ain’t playing,” James continued. “I ain’t got the fans in the crowd. That’s who I play for. I play for my teammates. I play for the fans. That’s what it’s all about. If I show up to an arena and there are no fans in there, I ain’t playing. They can do what they want to do.”

LeBron’s comments provided additional fodder for those of us embroiled in the argument over his legacy, particularly as it pertains to comparison between King James and former NBA innovator Michael Jordan, whose “flu game” has long been considered one of the most astounding sports performances in American history.
