In a new interview, LeBron James revealed that he almost switched sports in 2011, when a lockout delayed the start of the National Basketball Association season.

The Los Angeles Lakers star, speaking on the Uninterrupted platform's "WRTS: After Party" show that was released last night, said it remains his wish that the season comes back "sooner than later".

James' clutch block certainly changed the tone in the moment of a very entertaining and exhilarating Game 7 in Oakland, California, giving the Cavs a chance to win the franchise's first title in history. He formed the team he wanted in Miami.

LeBron James is generally acknowledged as the best basketball on the planet.

Paul Pierce and LeBron James had some great postseason battles. "I had no idea how long the lockout was going to be". You can nearly credit Pierce for helping James become the player he is today, as James had to go through Pierce's Celtics in the Eastern Conference finals, to win his first title with the Miami Heat in 2012.

In a recent appearance on the ESPN network, Pierce, who is now an analyst, excluded James from his top-5 in favor of Michael Jordan, Kareem Abdul-Jabaar, Bill Russell, Magic Johnson and Kobe Bryant. We started to clock our times with the 40s.

"I think Paul's list is more personal toward LeBron", Perkins said. We started to add a little bit more with the bench press and things of that nature. "We started to add more sled into our agenda with our workouts".

In the days following the announcement of the season's suspension, several players from different teams, including the Lakers, also tested positive for the deadly virus.

"I know he got a contract from Jerry Jones", Carter said, "that he framed and put in his office".
