With all NBA players, as well as people across the world, being asked to quarantine inside their homes due to COVID-19 aka the coronavirus, social media has been more active than usual. One Los Angeles Lakers player known for his presence on social media is none other than ‘The King’ LeBron James.
In the 29 minute Instagram live video, James had much to say with topics ranging from which TV show he enjoys more (to which he said is tied between “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and “Martin”) to his thoughts on the NBA suspension. The one statement made by James that perked up several Lakers fans ears is when he said:
