LeBron James works out with Ben Simmons in Las Vegas
Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James was spotted at last night’s NBA Summer League game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Philadelphia 76ers. Like James, Sixers forward and No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft Ben Simmons was there purely as a spectator. However, that didn’t stop the two athletes from spending some time together in the gym.
Simmons’ Sixers nearly pulled out a win, but the Lakers, led by Lonzo Ball‘s 36 points on 12-22 shooting from the floor (3-10 from 3-point range), 11 assists, and eight rebounds, managed to eek out 103-102 a come-from-behind victory.
James’ workout regiment and routines have been well-documented throughout the course of his career. Seeing him in the gym, inspiring the NBA’s next generation to keep their bodies in peak physical condition, is what really sets the King apart.
