LeBron James made an interesting statement regarding how he decided to spend his offseason.

James, who won the 2020 NBA title with the Los Angeles Lakers in October, revealed he ‘touched a basketball twice’ during the offseason.

“While James recently shared photos of an on-court workout with his 16-year-old son, Bronny, he revealed on the podcast he has only ‘touched a basketball twice’, during the truncated offseason.

Of course, the last time he had the rock in his hands, things went quite well for James. He won his fourth NBA title while being named Finals MVP for a fourth time after beating the Miami Heat 4-2 in the championship round,” Dave McMenamin of ESPN reports.

James and the Lakers will have the shortest offseason in American sports history (NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA), with just 71 days between Game 6 of the 2020 NBA Finals (October 11) and the start of the new season (December 22).
