The Los Angeles Lakers' LeBron James (23) in a game against the Milwaukee Bucks on March 6, 2020, in Los Angeles. 

ORLANDO, Fla. — When finally his anger boiled over, LeBron James decided to get up and leave before the meeting was over. With him went his Los Angeles Lakers teammates.

It was Wednesday night, and they’d spent more than an hour in a ballroom at a hotel convention center on Disney World’s property, discussing the fallout from the Milwaukee Bucks skipping that afternoon’s game in protest of Jacob Blake getting shot. Now, their game against the Portland Trail Blazers and another between Houston and Oklahoma City had been postponed, but there was still no coherent plan for what to do next.
