LeBron James Reportedly Mulling A Bid For NBPA Presidency
Published August 1, 2013
NOT ENOUGH SPACE: NBCSPORTS.com's Brett Pollakoff wrote demands on his time "is the core issue, and the reason someone like James could never successfully handle the duties of union president while flourishing as the game’s best player simultaneously." In addition to his team "regularly playing into June each season, LeBron’s schedule is packed with other engagements representing the league, as well as personal endorsement deals that require various trips and appearances." There is a "reason guys like Derek Fisher and Maurice Evans were so prominently involved in union issues recently, with Jerry Stackhouse handling things so far this offseason." To "put it bluntly, they don’t have a whole lot going on outside of their regular team responsibilities, which are fairly limited at this late stage of their respective careers" (NBCSPORTS.com, 7/31).
