LeBron Wisely Decides to Pass on Running for NBPA President

Last week, we brought you the news stating that LeBron James was considering making a run at Union president. Typically, star players don’t take on this role. It’s typically someone who is towards the end of his career, as that job can be very demanding, especially during a lockout.

It probably wasn’t that close to ever happening, but LeBron has decided to end that speculation. Wise decision on his part.

After days of careful consideration and research, Miami Heat star LeBron James decided he will not run for president or first vice president of the National Basketball Players Association, a person familiar with James’ decision told USA TODAY Sports.

Interested in union matters and the direction of the NBPA, James had considered both executive committee positions comprised of players but concluded he would not have enough time at this point in his career to give the positions the necessary attention they require. James called Heat teammate and NBPA secretary-treasurer James Jones on Monday and told him of his decision.
