LeBron James reacts to leaving family, heading to Orlando family
As NBA players arrive to the league’s 2019-20 season reset in Orlando, Florida, they are bound to get a rude awakening living in the new “bubble.” Los Angeles Lakers star forward LeBron James is one of many players on the 22 invited franchises to continue their seasons at Walt Disney World.
James, 35, reacted to his imminent arrival at the bubble, which has already seen many players arrive and react to conditions such as rooms and meals.
“Just left the crib to head to the bubble. Shit felt like I’m headed to do a bid man!”, James wrote on his official Twitter page.”Hated to leave the #JamesGang”.

LeBron James isn’t the only NBA star labeling the Orlando bubble as a “bid”—time spent in prison—as Portland Trail Blazers star point guard Damian Lillard shared a photo on Instagram earlier on Thursday of himself hugging his family. Lillard called the bubble a “bid” as well.
The Lakers will enter the final regular-season remaining games as the top seed in the Western Conference ahead of the playoff picture, also occurring singularly in the Orlando bubble.
James and the Lakers will skip meeting with Lillard and the Blazers, but the L.A. franchise will get a chance to play Staples Center rival Clippers on July 30 to kick start the season restart as the second game of the doubleheader.
James will soon arrive in Orlando, where he will be sequestered to a room. If it’s anything like other players, it may mean a meager meal (that went viral when Denver Nuggets guard Troy Daniels shared what was given to him) or even, for the NBA star, a smaller room and board than he’s used to.
