Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James earlier shared his delight over the arrival of his wife, Savannah James, inside the NBA bubble at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. But noticeably missing in action was the rest of the “James Gang,” which includes their three children Bronny, Bryce, and little Zhuri.
Shortly after James and the Lakers tied their Western Conference Semifinals series against the Houston Rockets on Sunday with a 117-109 victory in Game 2, The King explained why his three children did not make the trip to Florida, per Sports Illustrated's Melissa Rohlin.
“There's nothing for them to do…My kids are too adventurous.”
Judging by the James family's adorable videos online, LeBron's kids are quite the lively bunch. The high-profile family loves to share their shenanigans (mostly their synchronized TikTok dances) with their millions of followers.
Given LeBron's close family ties, the four-time MVP has earlier opened up that the hardest part of being inside the bubble was the challenge of being away from his family for prolonged periods. James claimed that this was also the longest that he hasn't seen his doting mother, Gloria James.
The league did allow players to entertain family members inside the Disney facilities right around the beginning of the second round of the postseason. However, Commissioner Adam Silver made it clear that players and their families won't be permitted to roam around the Disney World theme park, which is still closed to the public due to the pandemic.
LeBron James, meanwhile, is not alone on his decision to not have his children onboard. Most players also just elected to have their special someone enter the Disney premises. While the bubble is technically considered one of the safest places in the world right now, players understand that it might not be a kid-friendly environment as of the moment.
