During an interview with Spectrum SportsNet’s Allie Clifton, Los Angeles Lakers superstar small forward LeBron James announced the winner of the team’s “Madden NFL” tournament at Walt Disney World in the NBA bubble.

According to James, Lakers backup guard Quinn Cook defeated veteran small forward Markieff Morris to take home the trophy.

Via Lakers Nation:

“Year 1 is a wrap,” LeBron James said.

“Quinn Cook is the Super Bowl champion. His Arizona Cardinals defeated Markieff Morris and his Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl I. Season 2 [started Wednesday]. … Myself and my Cleveland Browns take on Jared Dudley and his newly [relocated] Los Angeles Chargers. I was going to say San Diego but they’re now in L.A.”

“Madden 21” recently came out, so we can assume the Lakers are playing the new game for season two. Let’s see if James can redeem himself and lead his hometown Cleveland Browns to the virtual title.

LeBron and the Lakers have been bonding at Disney World since they are basically stuck with each other. The chemistry in Los Angeles has been much better this season compared to 2018-19, a big reason why the team clinched the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference standings.

The Lakers, though, are down 1-0 to the Houston Rockets in the second round, so the team has to refocus for Game 2 to avoid going down 2-0.

The good news is that Los Angeles lost Game 1 to the Portland Trail Blazers in the first round before rattling off four wins in a row to win the series in five.
