As NBA players have dealt with being quarantined and trying to stay in shape while preparing to head to Orlando to play in the bubble, the Los Angeles Lakers teammates are expecting no drop-off from point forward LeBron James.

Danny Green said LeBron quote, “Is in the gym early, he’s leaving late and he’s the last guy working – and probably working the longest and the hardest. He hasn’t changed at all, man.”

Jared Dudley said James quote, “Is the leader. He’s the alpha. But he’s 50-50. He jokes just as much as he’s serious. He keeps it really even balanced, so for him, he’s ready for this moment. You can tell. You can see it in his beard that he’s ready.”

Hear why Award-winning journalist, TV host and author Skip Bayless believes the NBA break will provide LeBron James with the easiest path to the Finals in his entire career:

In 60 games so far this season, James is averaging 25.7 points, 7.9 rebounds, 1.2 steals, 0.4 blocks and 10.6 assists per game, while shooting at 49.8 percent from the floor and 34.9 percent from deep.

The Lakers are currently leading the Western Conference with 49 wins and 14 losses.
