Iman Shumpert Says LeBron James 'Ruined Basketball'

Iman Shumpert claimed LeBron James ruined basketball.

He said it was because of James' decision to go to Miami.

"Nah, it wasn't K.D.," Shumpert said. "It was Bron first going to Miami. Bron knows he ruined basketball. … Me personally, I love the NBA for the loyalty that I thought was there. He basically knocked the fourth wall down. … He wasn't supposed to do that."

Earlier this month James entered the NBA health and safety protocols after testing positive for Covid-19.

"Obviously, it's a huge loss," Lakers coach Frank Vogel said. "It's disappointing. We just want the best for him right now. That's where our thoughts are. And we have a next man up mindset."

"I think he's asymptomatic, which is a good sign, but we want to make sure that he gets back," Davis continued. "Health is most important. This is bigger than basketball. He has a family. We want to make sure that he's good no matter what."
