David Samson has shared his thoughts on LeBron James’ comments concerning coronavirus.

There have been 13 reported cases of coronavirus in Los Angeles so far, which is a concern. And Los Angeles Lakers star has revealed he doesn’t want to play if fans can’t attend games due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Speaking during Monday’s installment of “Nothing Person with David Samson,” Samson said he believes James should’ve stated his intentions in a different way.

He said: “How about going public and saying this? The reason why I would prefer not to play without fans because I love the energy provided by the people in LA and wherever we play on the road. I love the feeling of the crowd noise and of people excitedly coming to games and enjoying my entertainment. However, if it is safer not to play in front of fans, then I’m going to play my best for everyone at home watching on TV, for everyone who is quarantined.”
