Lakers star LeBron James misses being a dad in NBA Bubble
Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James is a proud family man. He spends most of his off-hours with his wife and their three children. Unfortunately, he couldn’t do it inside the NBA bubble in Orlando after he decided not to bring his kids.
So while most of his teammates are enjoying their time with their families, LBJ’s focus solely remains on helping the Lakers reclaim the title.
Obviously though, that doesn’t mean he’s not missing his family. In fact, he posted on Instagram a photo of his kids — Bronny, Bryce and Zhuri — as he feels the effects of not being around them for almost two months now.
The four-time MVP, who’s averaging 25.6 points, 10.0 rebounds and 8.7 assists per game this postseason, earlier said he chose not to bring his kids because the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex is not a kid-friendly place.
“My kids are too adventurous and they love to do so much stuff, it makes no sense for them to be here. There’s nothing for them to do here. They can stay in Los Angeles and they’re great,” the Lakers star explained.
While the NBA bubble is located at the massive Disney World, the parks and other attractions are not open. But according to a story from The Orange County Register, the NBA has set up various activities for children like arts and crafts lessons and a morning school.
The arrival of families has clearly given an extra emotional boost to most players, especially this deep in the postseason. So even though he doesn’t have his own kids around, LeBron James still finds the time to enjoy horsing around with the children of his teammates.
