On August 1, , according to US media reports, LeBron James, who is on the court, does not seem to be satisfied with his current achievements. He hopes to run for the chairman of the players union and contribute to the development of the union he cares about.
The end of his term of office and the entanglement of lawsuits make it unlikely that the current chairman of the union, Derek Fisher, will be re-elected. Moreover, he just signed a new contract with the Thunder, making the situation even more unsuspecting.
And this summer, most of the union’s affairs are mainly handled by the union’s first and first vice chairman Jerry Stackhouse.
Judging from the current situation, the union held in Las Vegas in late August is very likely to elect a new chairman.
Many people expressed their support for James running for the chairmanship of the labor union, believing that he is qualified for this position.
According to a person close to James, "During the All-Star Weekend meeting, he spoke very enthusiastically and believed that the union should be reformed. The NBA will usher in a new president and executive director, and he believes that the union should also change." He not only
I want to be the best player, and I want to get more benefits for the players.
Some people think that there is another advantage of James being elected. The executive director will make it easier to mobilize other superstars, let them actively participate in union activities, and cooperate with the new league president Adam Silver.
The source said that although James had expressed his willingness to run for office before, he upholds a serious and responsible attitude, and it depends on whether he has the energy to manage it.
"James’ time is already relatively tight, but whether it is formal or informal, James is very concerned about the development of the union and will actively participate in the reconstruction of the union. If James is really elected, he will become the most famous chairman in the history of the union.
