The Los Angeles Lakers didn’t take the bubble court yesterday, but they made sure to make a presence in the virtual parks, with some of their best players running Pro Am on NBA 2K20. The last couple of years haven’t been easy for anybody, with players boycotting games and the NBA season in jeopardy, according to reports.
It was reported that LeBron and his Lakers teammates, as well as the whole Clippers team, walked out of the players meeting yesterday out of anger with the Milwaukee Bucks and their decision to boycott their Game 5 without talking with any other player or team in the Orlando bubble. LeBron didn’t like that move and he left the meeting, followed by the rest of the team.
Sources: The Lakers and Clippers have voted to boycott the NBA season. Most other teams voted to continue. LeBron James has exited the meeting.

That wasn’t the only time Bron was spotted playing online videogames. He did the same with NFL Madden and fans once again spotted the King, who needed to relax after a tumultuous day.
LeBron had to get some Madden in after the meeting. 😂😂
Same gamer tag for LeBron when he was on 2K Park with AD and Quinn Cook

It’s unclear how this whole thing will go down, we all are expecting what the league and the players are going to say on this whole situation. Meanwhile, players have to look for different methods to clear their minds, something that was already hard.
