Over the weekend ESPN reported the following:
"The NBA is considering extending the All-Star break into a seven-day hiatus next season, according to a report by the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
Citing multiple sources, the Sun Sentinel reported that the league currently is using the week-long All-Star break as its 'model' while filling out the 2014-15 season."
And while I'm on the subject of Mr. James, here's what he said back in 2009 when he announced that he would no longer wear the number 23 (also via ESPN):
"I just think what Michael Jordan has done for the game has to be recognized some way soon. There would be no LeBron James, no Kobe Bryant, no Dwyane Wade if there wasn't Michael Jordan first. He can't get the logo, and if he can't, something has to be done. I feel like no NBA player should wear 23. I'm starting a petition, and I've got to get everyone in the NBA to sign it. Now, if I'm not going to wear No. 23, then nobody else should be able to wear it."
I guess LeBron is over that sentiment, as he's now planning to go back to No. 23 in his return to Cleveland. Could someone ask him about this please? Also, how very LeBron-esque was that quote about how if not even he is going to wear 23 then nobody should? Classic.
