I aint playing: LeBron James weighs in on games in EMPTY ARENAS due to virus crisis the NBA won

‘I ain’t playing’: LeBron James weighs in on games in EMPTY ARENAS due to virus crisis – the NBA won’t like his reply

Asked about the NBA’s suggestion that, to cope with the expanding Covid-19 outbreak, players perform in front of only essential staff at games, LeBron James has come up with a brutally honest response.

James was asked about how he would feel scoring without screaming fans to cheer him on, after a memo from the NBA (about basketball teams possibly being restricted to playing games in front of essential staff only) was revealed through The Athletic.

Sources: The NBA has sent a memo to its franchises explaining that, due to coronavirus outbreak, teams should be preparing to play games without fans in attendance and identifying “essential staff” present for these games -- should it be necessary.

“I ain’t playing if I ain’t got the fans in the crowd. That’s who I play for. I play for my teammates, and I play for the fans. That’s what it’s all about. So if I show up to an arena and there ain’t no fans in there, I ain’t playing. They can do what they want to do,” the LA Lakers star said.

1. Professional Sports exists SOLELY for Entertainment

Why do it for no audience?

3. Maybe people are not showing up because basketball is dull as hell?

then again any pro sports your'e best off saving the $300 or so bucks that attending costs.
and hosting a lobstrer/clambake and a TV for those few interested neighbors to watch it on.
