It’s already been a long off-season for LeBron James.
He produced astonishing figures during the 2021–22 NBA season, his 19th in the league, yet failed to make it to their Los Angeles Lakers play-in tournament, despite the presence of Russell Westbrook.
James suffered a number of ailments throughout the campaign, including an abdominal injury, ankle sprain, and knee ailment, leading some to speculate that perhaps his body was beginning to heal after nearly two decades of wear and tear. .
For the past few weeks, he’s reportedly been pushing for L.A. to push Westbrook out the door with the Cleveland Cavaliers in favor of his old championship partner, Kyrie Irving.
But James will have a chance to have a little fun, as he will appear in the Drew League, a pro-am league based in the Los Angeles area.
Many major NBA superstars have participated since the founding of the Drew League in 1973, including Julius Irving, Kobe Bryant, and Kevin Durant.
It should be a brief respite for the four-time MVP as he trains and prepares for his 20th NBA season, one that he certainly hopes for a return to championship glory for him.
