LeBron James is back on a basketball court a lot sooner than anyone would have imagined, and it is safe to say that everyone is hyped about it. After making a surprise return to the Drew League for the first time since 2011 earlier in this offseason, the King is now headed to the CrawsOver Pro-Am League!
Jamal Crawford announced the big news on Twitter, which delighted basketball fans everywhere, and LeBron himself is hyped about playing in Seattle for the first time since 2007.
His last appearance there saw LeBron drop a game-high 30 points to go with 7 rebounds, 8 assists, 2 steals, and a block, but the Sonics still managed to come out on top. We can expect another dominant showing from LeBron here, and he'd want to get the win this time around, which is exactly what he did in his Drew League outing, and you'd fancy a repeat here.
LeBron has been keeping himself quite busy this offseason, and it has been a pleasant surprise to see him take part in these Pro-Am leagues after such a long absence from them. It is a special experience not just for the fans in attendance but also for the players who get to share the court with him, as most of them would never have otherwise gotten this golden opportunity to play alongside such a legend of the game. It looks set to be a memorable day for everybody involved, and we can't wait to see the King put on a show on the court once again.
The action is set to start at 1:00 PM on Saturday, but fans are already getting in line in front of the entrance as they want to make sure they don't miss out on what is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a lot of them.
