LeBron James’ quest for a fourth NBA title continued as he arrived in Orlando ahead of the NBA restart.
James, 35, landed in the city on Thursday that night along with fellow team-mates such as Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard.
The Lakers star took to Twitter to react to his imminent arrival at the bubble and he expressed his sadness at leaving his family behind for the foreseeable future.
‘Just left the crib to head to the bubble,’ he tweeted.
‘S*** felt like I’m headed to do a bid man! Fr. [For real] Hated to leave the #JamesGangCrown.’
The Lakers, who are atop the Western Conference with a record of 49-14, flew to Orlando on Thursday and they could be there for more than three months if they go deep into the playoffs. Game 7 of The Finals would be Oct. 12.
NBA players will be without their families until at least after the first round of the playoffs, according to ESPN. The second round is set to begin Aug. 31.
Twenty two of the 30 NBA teams, all who have post-season ambitions, have been invited to conclude the campaign in Orlando. They have between Tuesday and Friday to arrive on the east coast.
