LeBron James: Players Union ‘Not In A Good Place Right Now’


LeBron James is still trying to decide if he has enough time and energy to take on the job as president of the NBA’s players union.

James for his part, thinks his voice could go a long way in making things better.

“I just think the union is going backwards and it’s not in a good place right now,” James said.

“I think my voice could be huge in that situation.”

James would be the most high-profiled star to lead the players union since Patrick Ewing.

“I’m not sure I have the time to do it but it’s something I’m going to think about with my team and go from there,” James said. “But I think we all can agree there’s been a lot of transition in our union in the last couple of years. If it’s not me in that seat then I hope it’s someone who is comfortable with it and can do the job.”
