LeBron James against canceling 2019-20 NBA season: ‘I'm ready'


According to reports, NBA player agents and team executives have privately discussed just how difficult an official return to action would be, with support growing to cancel the 2019-20 season. Well, don't count LeBron James as part of that group.

James puts safety first but appears to be in the camp that would definitely finish the 2019-20 season in some capacity when health officials give the OK, stating:

"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."
