Update: The NBA has told ESPN that LeBron James will not face suspension for violating the league’s rules.

Original: LeBron James might be in some hot water over violating policy that shouldn’t be ignored. He attended a huge event for Lobos tequila, a brand that he has stake in, but that was against NBA policy.

The NBA isn’t messing around with the COVID-19 pandemic. They don’t want an outbreak in any locker room. This is why attending huge events is still off limits. LeBron went to this star-studded event and hung out with Drake and Michael B. Jordan and that caught plenty of attention.

On a side note, Drake and Michael B. Jordan were also courtside during LeBron’s huge clutch shot against the Warriors. The actor and actor-turned-rapper’s bromance is getting a lot of love from fans.

The Lakers are looking for a solid playoff journey, but LeBron’s outing on Monday might have put that in jeopardy. It is against the NBA’s health and safety protocols to attend an event that large.

ESPN reports that the huge event was flagged by the NBA. We will have to see if they take action against LeBron James for attending.

Players have been forced into 10 to 14 day quarantines in such situations. That could be a playoff breaker over King James breaking the rules. He would be forced to miss the first few games in the Lakers’ first-round playoff series against the Suns if that is the case.

We will continue monitoring this situation here at Thirsty.

Does LeBron deserve to sit out for a couple of weeks for attending that party? Sound off in the comments!
