VIDEO: Lakers’ LeBron James celebrates Taco Tuesday amid coronavirus suspension
Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James’ “Taco Tuesday”s have to go on while much of the United States and around the world is under lockdown during the coronavirus outbreak. James, 35, celebrated another festive Tuesday while the NBA is suspended until further notice.
You already know what time it is in the James household 🗣🌮

James shared a video of himself shouting “Taco Tuesday” on Instagram amid another week of suspensions, cancelations, and people scared of the spread of COVID-19. Explaining that he’s trying to “stay positive”—potentially poor word choice as other NBA players and members in organizations (including the Lakers) tested positive for coronavirus—LeBron shared a video of his weekly excitement and his taco meal.
The NBA suspended league operations effective March 12 and it could extend much farther than the initial 30-day prognosis of a hiatus. The International Olympic Committee on Tuesday announced the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan, would be postponed a year, so there is no telling when James, the Lakers, and the NBA will be back in business too, and if the 2019-20 season will resume at all.
