Lebron James isn’t interested in playing games that the fans aren’t able to attend and enjoy.

The NBA told teams to start preparing to play games without any fans in attendance. Many other sport leagues have suspended games in front of crowds in fear of the coronavirus spreading. According to HuffPost, LeBron James doesn’t like the idea of shutting fans out of the game.

“Play games without the fans?” LeBron told reporters following the Lakers’ victory over the Bucks. “No. That’s impossible. I ain’t playing.”

“I ain’t got the fans in the crowd. That’s who I play for,” LeBron continued. “I play for my teammates. I play for the fans. That’s what it’s all about. If I show up to an arena and there are no fans in there, I ain’t playing. They can do what they want to do.”
