LeBron James didn’t hold back his thoughts of the Bubble in his NBA Finals press conference on Tuesday afternoon. He says it (The Bubble) is the “most challenging thing” that he has ever been through and added that it has taken a “toll on his mind and body”.
LeBron says even through the challenges, his mindset remains the same. He states: “I am here for one reason and one reason only, and that is to compete for a championship. That was my mindset when I entered the bubble, and once I entered the quarantine process. Right from my first practice, my mindset was that if I’m gonna be here, make the most of it and see what you can do and lock in on what the main thing is. The main thing is to finish the season and compete for a championship.”
King James says it feels like it’s been “five years” since he had first entered the bubble, but adds that “he is as locked in as he ever been in his career”.
