Novak Djokovic is one of the best tennis players of all time. It’s not that big of a surprise to see he’s got a decent jump shot since he’s an elite athlete.
How would LeBron James fair on the tennis court, though? Odds are players would be intimidated by the Lakers star’s physique, as LeBron is 6-foot-8 and 250 pounds. He’s arguably the most athletic player in NBA history.
James and the Lakers are among the 22 teams scheduled to partake in the “bubble” games down in Orlando, Florida. The season is expected to resume on July 30. The Lakers have the best record in the Western Conference standings and will face either the Memphis Grizzlies, New Orleans Pelicans, Portland Trail Blazers, Sacramento Kings, Phoenix Suns or San Antonio Spurs in the first round of the 2020 playoffs.
Before games were suspended in March, James was averaging 25.7 points, 7.9 rebounds and 10.6 assists for the Lakers. The four-time MVP and three-time champion was also shooting 49.8 percent from the field, 34.9 percent from beyond the arc and 69.7 percent from the free-throw line.
Once the “bubble” games begin, the Lakers will be one of the favorites to win the 2020 title. Both LeBron and Anthony Davis are eager to bring title No. 17 to the Lakers franchise.
