LeBron’s Seattle Pro-Am Debut Ends Early Due to Condensation on Court

The Lakers superstar headlined a star-studded exhibition marking his first game in the city since 2007.

The Lakers superstar was the main attraction of a star-studded exhibition, his first game in the city since 2007.

Unfortunately, Saturday’s star-studded Pro-Am game in Seattle, highlighted by LeBron James’s return to the city, was called off early due to unsafe playing conditions.

At “The Crawsover,” an annual summer league hosted by former NBA guard Jamal Crawford, the Lakers superstar was once again the star of the show entering the day’s final game alongside a number of other NBA players, including Celtics All-Star Jayson Tatum. James played in his first game in Seattle since 2007 on Saturday, and it was his second pro-am appearance of the offseason.

However, James was only able to play for a quarter and a half before the game was called in the second quarter due to condensation on the court, so he was unable to follow up on his impressive performance at the Drew League in July.

Not only did the first two picks in this year’s NBA draft, James and Tatum, play in the highly anticipated matchup, but also the Hawks’ Dejounte Murray and NBA veteran Isaiah Thomas, the Magic’s Paolo Banchero, and the Thunder’s Chet Holmgren.

Even though basketball fans were cheated out of a historic exhibition, Crawford’s league will be remembered for holding the largest pick-up game in recent history. The insanity that ensued in the pregame hours of Saturday’s pro-am game will also be remembered fondly.

Some of the day’s highlights are as follows.
