LeBron James On Why He Didn’t Want His Kids In NBA Bubble
LeBron James is one of the biggest family men in the NBA. His wife Savannah, and his children Bronny, Bryce and Zhuri are constantly featured in the background of his social media posts and referenced by the LA Lakers star.
When the NBA announced that it would finally be permitting family members to join players in the bubble, most assumed that James would bring his entire family out.
Yet when the time came, only Savannah joined him.
This week, James explained why he opted not to bring his children into the bubble.
“There’s nothing for them to do,” he said. “My kids are too adventurous.”
LeBron James on why he decided to not have his kids come into the NBA bubble: “There’s nothing for them to do…My kids are too adventurous.”

The sentiment makes sense. As multiple players and coaches have confirmed over the past few weeks, the NBA’s bubble is a very draining and isolating experience. If it is that tough on adults, the impact it would have on children is probably ten times more intense.
Moreover, James’ kids all very active. Bronny, in particular, has a social following that is more massive than many of James’ Lakers teammates.
With just Savannah there and no little ones to worry about keeping entertained, James will be able to fully focus on the task at hand: winning his fourth NBA championship.
Los Angeles is currently locked in a very competitive match-up with the Houston Rockets.
Houston took Game 1, whereas the Lakers won Game 2. Many believe the winner of the series will go on to win the whole thing.
Game 3 between the Lakers and Rockets is set to take place Tuesday night. While James’ kids aren’t with him in the bubble, they will no doubt be watching their dad in action next week from the comforts of their own home.
