The Jump


Adrian wojnarowski. The nba and the players association are expected. By next week to have finalized an agreement forgot just picking all star teams which the league was always expected to do right. You need those for contracts and everything else but hold an actual all star game on march seventh in atlanta per the memo the single night event will encompass the game as well as the skills competitions and lebron was asked about this last night and lebron was not pleased last night take a hidden. I have zero energy and zero excitement about an all star game this year. I don't even understand why we're having all star game But it's the agreement at the players. Association lee came about short off season for for myself and my teammates. Seventy one days and they come into the season. We're told that we were not having all star game so we had a nice little break. Five days from fifty to tamp an opportunity for me to kind of recalibrate for the second half of the season my teammates as well some somebody guys in a league and then they throw all star game on his like this and his brakes that all the way up so pretty much the kind of a slap in the face and you know we're also still dealing with what a pandemic we're still dealing with everything that's been going on and we're going to bring a holiyay into one that's open now so you know. Obviously the pandemic has absolutely nothing to do with it at this point when it comes to that weekend so Obviously guys can see. I'm very happy about it. But it's out of my hands and you know i'll be there from selected but i'll be there physically but not mentally a lot. They're a slap in the face. Lebron james says no vince. You're an eight time all star and you also weren't all-star over the time i just want to give context here. The league evolve where they used to. Just throw you into the all star game through you back at your teams then. The players union negotiated having a few extra days on each and so the guys who were all stars could at least also get a break. That's not going to exist this time. Either it's really just four or five day stretch to be off from your regular schedule and they want these guys to fly to atlanta. How would you feel if you were lebron. I'll feel like he feels because think about this. You asking these guys to have a quick turnaround shortened offseason to get back in and obviously money is involved so if you come back you make your money okay.

Coming up next
