I won’t play if NBA will ban my fans over coronavirus: Lebron James

LOS ANGELES (KRON): Following the outbreak of novel coronavirus, the concerns regarding the spread of the disease in Los Angeles are increasing day by day. A recent report has confirmed that the number of cases of novel coronavirus in California has made health and city officials take drastic measures to avoid the virus from spreading further.

Recently, efforts we made in California in order to limit the spread of COVID-19 in the state. Regarding the concern, several events were postponed or canceled, which was taken as a precaution to fight against the disease.

To make sure that there are no further threats from the COVID-19, most of the professional sports team executives recently interacted with the leading news channels and, in one of their statements, shared that they would consider playing in empty arenas and fields. But NBA star Lebron James didn’t like that idea.

James took the concern to Twitter, and in one of the posts over the social media platform wrote: 


“If I show up to an arena and there ain’t no fans in there, I ain’t playing.”

James mentioned that he would possibly not participate in any of the games if his fans won’t be allowed in the arenas and fields due to coronavirus outbreak. He said that the fear of the coronavirus could not ban his fans from seeing him playing on the field.

“That’s who I play for. I play for my teammates, I play for the fans that’s what it’s all about,” he said. “If I show up to an arena and there ain’t no fans in there, I ain’t playing.”

Our news sources have reported that until now a total of seven coronavirus cases have been reported in the country. Health and city officials are pushing their limits to prevent the virus from spreading.
