(Reuters) – LeBron James guided the Los Angeles Lakers to the NBA Championship within a biosecure environment in Orlando last year, but says the very thought of being trapped inside a bubble again gives him the creeps. The 2019-20 season was hit by a four-month delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic and was completed in October with teams competing in a bubble at Walt Disney (NYSE 🙂 World. The Lakers captured a record 17 NBA Championship on October 12 with a victory over the Heat. “Well, the bubble was a success from a performance standpoint in that our league got back up,” James, whose team beat the Houston Rockets 117-100 on Tuesday, told reporters. “I haven’t given much thought to the bubble after I left. You keep giving me PTSD every time you ask me about the bubble. I started to shake thinking of 96 nights in a row there.” The NBA has told players to stay in their residences when at home and in hotels when on the road, for at least the next two weeks as part of their new health protocols. The league postponed one game on Sunday and three this week due to the virus, but said it had no plans to suspend the season. The current season has a reduced schedule of 72 games.
