LeBron James, Others Request Longer Break

LeBron James

New NBA commissioner Adam Silver revealed in an interview with ESPN Radio that Miami Heat star LeBron James is among the players who have personally asked him to make the league’s annual All-Star break longer.

Silver told the network that he met briefly with multiple players during All-Star Weekend and shared that James, in particular, is lobbying for an extended break to allow the game’s stars to enjoy some semblance of respite from the grind of the regular season.

James and fellow Eastern Conference All-Stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh met their Miami teammates Monday in Dallas for an evening practice before the season resumes Tuesday night against the Mavericks.
