LeBron James reportedly asked Adam Silver for longer All-Star break, fewer back-to-backs
LeBron James wanted the NBA to dump sleeved jerseys.
Want another example of LeBron’s influence with Adam Silver?
LeBron’s other request is a bit trickier. Because the league still must fit 82 games per team and a longer All-Star break in a short period of time, back-to-backs are up this season.
LeBron has offered a solution – reducing the number of games – but that would probably reduce revenue. I think we’ve found our limit on what Silver will do for LeBron.
Still, the commissioner is trying to accommodate by shrinking the preseason and moving up the start of the regular season.
So, is Silver going too far to please LeBron? Nah, these are just good ideas.
