LeBron James didn’t become basketball’s GOAT by ignoring doctors. While cartoon characters can bounce back from any injury, 35-year-olds aren’t so lucky. What is the secret to the three-time MVP’s longevity despite a global pandemic? Is he secretly taking Michael Jordan’s Secret Sauce, a steroid popular with animated athletes? Of course not!

To do that, James must keep himself and his teammates safe. Here are some tips for how to ball safely like LeBron James during the global pandemic.
