The LeBron James Pandemic Jam Rules For Playing Basketball During a Health Crisis

LeBron James didn’t become basketball’s GOAT by ignoring doctors. While cartoon characters can bounce back from any injury, 35-year-olds aren’t so lucky. What is the secret to the three-time MVP’s longevity despite a global pandemic? Is he secretly taking Michael Jordan’s Secret Sauce, a steroid popular with animated athletes? Of course not! But, it’s not all talent, hard work, and genetics either. James takes his diet and exercise as seriously as Bugs Bunny baking a carrot cake.

The superstar brings those same smarts to the NBA’s much-touted bubble. And no, it’s nothing like Pauly Shore’s Bio-Dome, except for maybe all the secret partying. Located at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Florida, it isn’t quite like a spaceship. Still, it’s probably good practice for James. He is set to star in the much-awaited sequel to Space Jam due out next year. In the meantime, he’ll be working towards winning a fourth NBA Championship. To do that, James must keep himself and his teammates safe. Here are some tips for how to ball safely like LeBron James during the global pandemic.
