The league’s teams arrived at the Disney Wide World of Sports complex in Kissimmee in July 2020, where all teams stayed for at least five and a half weeks and some for more than three months.
In the clip, James jokes that the bubble is the reason he didn’t bring his daughter to Disney World.
The Los Angeles Lakers eventually won the NBA championship in the bubble against the Miami Heat.
