After former NBA all star point guard, Derek Fishers contract as the president of the National Basketball Players Association expired just this summer, the hunt for a new face is on going and could very well be announced as early as this month during the NBAPA meeting out in Los Vegas.
Undoubtedly the best player in the NBA, Lebron James could very well be the new face of the NBAPA. James has stated at union meetings earlier in the year that the NBAPA needs to see some changes in the way the handle things. James who already has all the money, fame and everything else you could get from acquiring this position would obviously only be in it for the actual rights and needs of current and future players. Like fisher tried to do during the NBA lockout, which is actually when James started to pursue an interest in union politics during a few of the owner/player barging meetings.
Union Vice President Chris Paul, of the Los Angeles Clippers is a good friend of James and it seems like a perfect fit for them two to work side by side.
If Lebron does acquire the presidential position he would top the list as the highest income revenue player to hold a position within the union ever.
It’s going to be a big role for James to manage, especially with a lot on his mind with what he’ll end up doing after this season ends, when he has a player option and trying to accomplish a three-peat. He could stay with the dynasty that he has started and built down in Miami or he could take his talents somewhere else. But thats an entire different subject.
