Lakers’ LeBron James perplexed by current status of high school basketball, where Bronny still plays

LeBron James, Lakers

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James expressed his confusion on the current status of high school basketball, especially that his son Bronny James is an incoming sophomore.

Via Twitter, James — seven weeks removed from his title with the Lakers — pointed out how out several teams are playing except high school squads.

James, fresh off his latest NBA title with the Lakers, seems to be genuinely curious. After all, Bronny needs all the experience and playing time he could get. The pandemic has pretty much postponed or greatly affected any type of sports activity.

Several fans answered James’ query. According to one, high schools don’t have enough funds to test the kids regularly. As such, the fan believes that more testing should be conducted for the games to resume and for the parents to feel safe.

Another one noted that college games rack up more revenues for schools. As such, these games are prioritized more than the high school ones, as Lakers fans might know. The money earned doesn’t just turn into profits, but they use it for COVID-19 testing kits as well.

From the looks of it, James of the Lakers really wants his son to put some work in thru actual games. Yes, James has been spotted working out with his son this offseason. But nothing compares to actually competing against other teams.

But like most people around the world, high school teams have no choice but to follow the protocols set by their respective states. Some have relaxed their restrictions while others have allowed their citizens to move about. But the fact is that the virus is still there. And it isn’t safe until we have a vaccine that’s fully effective. Lakers fans, Angelenos, and Californians in general are living in a very confusing time and are trying to get a sense of consistency in the midst of everything swirling around them.
