After NBA announced the season will resume in Orlando, Florida next month, players in the Los Angeles Lakers think they have time to gather the team in the same pace.
Lakers player said there is no division and they need to reposition the league and the team.
The Lakers were worried that Howard planned to sit outside the basketball court for the rest of the season due to the social injustices facing black people in the United States. Howard’s agent said he has not decided whether playing basketball in this season or not as other issues is in his mind right now.
Another Lakers player LeBron James desires to play in the league. The LA Clippers’ Patrick Beverley tweeted on Sunday that “Hoopers say what y’all want. If @kingJames said he hooping. We all hooping. Not Personal only BUSINESS”.
Howard said basketball is an entertainment that is not needed at this moment and only distracts the huge social issues in the US. The distraction can launch a trickle-down effect that may never stop.
