LeBron James Emphatically Responds To Rumors Of Canceling NBA Season


What the grapevine tells LeBron James differs from a message the rumor mill has churned out.

The Los Angeles Lakers superstar refuted reports about an increasing wish to cancel the remainder of the 2019-20 season. James used Twitter on Thursday to take umbrage at a rumor, which claims NBA executives and agents of players want to cancel the remainder of the 2019-20 season, and express his desire to resume the campaign.

“Saw some reports about execs and agents wanting to cancel season???” James wrote. “That?s absolutely not true. Nobody I know saying anything like that. As soon as it?s safe we would like to finish our season. I?m ready and our team is ready. Nobody should be canceling anything. ?”

The Lakers were leading the Western Conference standings with a 49-14 record when the NBA suspended play March 11 due to the coronavirus outbreak.

While the NBA is considering a number of options for resuming play in the coming weeks or months, none seem to have emerged as a front-running scenario.

James’ emphatic response to the rumor undoubtedly will gain attention and might influence power-brokers’ decision-making. That alone won’t bring back the NBA, but the chances of it happening might have inched upward following his tweet.
