Fans had gathered around the Seattle CrawsOver since yesterday to get to see LeBron James play in the summer league. There was an amazing expectation for the games as this league is one of the most popular leagues in the offseason. However, the game ended the completely opposite way. As the second quarter was played, some players started to suffer some injuries and then LeBron ended up leaving the court as the game was called off.

Every basketball game has an injury risk, even a 1 on 1 in the back yard. However, during this game, there started to be some condensation on the court. The league decided to call off the game as it wasn't worth risking the players, especially a player as important as LeBron James. Condensation on the court means that the floor starts to get wet and slippery. During the game, we saw some injuries, including one to Chet Holmgren.

This was LeBron James' first game in almost 15 years. This was supposed to be a great welcome to the future Hall of Famer. Fans wanted to see a display similar to what he did during the Drew League, but none of those things happened. Instead, we saw a side we almost never saw from James, as he was the first player to leave the court without waiting for any of his teammates. It definitely seemed as if he didn't want to be there at all.

This was the last chance for fans to see LeBron James in a game before the preseason starts. Now we'll have to wait at least one month to see him as the Lakers will play the Sacramento Kings. Still, people can't explain how something like this happened in a league that has been going for a few years now. There has to be an explanation by Jamal Crawford. It also will be important to see how the players react to the situation.

What's next for LeBron James?

The 'King' just signed a two-year, $97 million extension with the Lakers. He will be the face of the franchise for the following years, but we have to see if he will lead a mediocre team or a competitive one. Still, training camp is right around the corner.
