• The NBA suspension has forced players to be creative in staying productive at home
  • Lebron James continues to study game tape from decades ago
  • The Lakers were number one in the Western Conference before the suspension happened

The news of the COVID-19 continues to develop each day as it continues to impact the entire world. The sporting community is in hiatus as the rapidly evolving coronavirus persists in infecting thousands of lives. Professional athletes are not exempt from the news of Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell testing positive for the virus.

The coronavirus hasn’t stopped as several other players have tested positive including Detroit Pistons’ Christian Wood followed by four other Brooklyn Nets players. The biggest name out of these includes two-time NBA champion Kevin Durant who is currently recovering from his Achilles injury.

The NBA is indefinitely suspended as a precautionary measure. The league is looking at a mid-to-late June return before a game proceeds again – most likely to be played in a smaller venue without a live audience.

Several players have coped through the loss of the season in different ways. Whether it’s binging on YouTube highlights or setting up TikTok accounts, these athletes are definitely itching to get back on the court.

LA Lakers Lebron James likes to focus on the court action of his old days in St. Vincent-St. Mary High School. He shared on his Instagram stories his thoughts on select plays of his high school matchup against the Brookhaven high school.

Lebron was only 17 years old during the clip where he was already selling out arenas from across the country. The Ohio State Arena was filled with fans looking forward to having a glimpse of what the biggest high school prospect of that time had.

Lebron is currently leading the Lakers in the first place of the Western Conference with a 49-14 standing. The team is in a position to lock the first seed if they continue their consistency on the floor. The Clippers pose as their biggest threat in the top spot as they are 5.5 games behind the Lakers with a 44-20 win-loss record.

Before the suspension happened, Lebron was having another all-around season as he was tallying 25.7 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 10.6 assists per outing.
