Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James tops list of NBA players with busy offseasons

Published:

LeBron James‘ offseason was perhaps highlighted by his surprise showing within the Drew League, where he took the ground with Chicago Bulls guard DeMar DeRozan on the MMV Cheaters.

It was the Los Angeles Lakers star’s first appearance on the L.A.-based pro-am summer basketball league in over a decade and he posted a 42 point, 16 rebound statline en path to a 104-102 win.

His offseason stays a preferred topic, as he made an Instagram post of a workout he accomplished on the Lakers’ practice facility along with his sons, Bronny and Bryce.

James has been vocal about his desire to play along with his oldest son. Bronny is ready to start his senior season at Sierra Canyon High School in the autumn, and Bryce might be a sophomore.

“My last 12 months might be played with my son,” James said to The Athletic in February. “Wherever Bronny is at, that is where I will be. I’d do whatever it takes to play with my son for one 12 months. It isn’t in regards to the money at that time.”

The video showed the three of them completing various drills, including a trio of dunks.

But James is not the only NBA player with interesting offseason activities. From star-studded nuptials to movie premieres and more, players across the association have been quite busy this summer.
