The Los Angeles Lakers are top of the Western Conference, but their main man is starting to feel the effects of living 2,500 miles from home.
LeBron James admits he's been feeling homesick since arriving at in the Orlando 'bubble' for the revamped NBA season.
Competition favourites the Lakers are 2-2 at Walt Disney World after their 116-108 win over the Utah Jazz on Tuesday - an underwhelming start by the star-studded team's lofty standards.
And despite clinching the number one seed in the west, LeBron James admits that it's been a 'huge challenge' having to relocate half way across the country.
"I miss the hell out of my family," LeBron told USA Today.
"My wife, my kids, my mother, and so on, and so on. So, it's a huge challenge."
And with the condensed campaign set to conclude in mid-October, it could be a while until James embraces his loved ones at LAX.
While a reunion with his family will undoubtedly happen down the line, the real question is whether he'll return home from his inter-state work trip with a fourth NBA championship ring?
