LeBron more serious about running for NBA union president

By Alejandro Freixes, CCNN Head Writer

Well, after some back-and-forth about maybe running for president, LeBron is making stronger statements about his intentions.  He’s concerned about the direction the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) is going, and thinks it’s “not in a good place right now.” In an interview with ESPN on Saturday, James explained, “I just think the union is going backwards… I think my voice could be huge in that situation.” The union’s summer meeting is later this month in Vegas, and the L-Train again emphasized his lack of time. “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.”
