LeBron James lobbying for longer All-Star break

When LeBron James advocates for something, it would be wise to take it seriously. 

In an interview with ESPN Radio, new commissioner Adam Silver said

he met with multiple players during All-Star Weekend and James in particular lobbied for a longer All-Star break.

It's one of the items on the list of "B issues" Silver wants to address, along with increasing the age limit. 

A longer All-Star break would need to be agreed upon between the league and NBA Players Association. It would allow for an actual break for James and fellow All-Stars, who spend their short break doing work-related appearances. 

"A guy like LeBron, All-Star Weekend is not a break for him in any way," Silver told ESPN. "He's going around the clock with a combination of things the league is asking him to do, personal commitments, and I think it makes sense if we can work in the schedule a few days so the All-Stars can get a break as well."

As with increasing the age limit to 20, the extended All-Star break can be negotiated between the two sides at any time. Silver said he anticipates the longer break to be a prime discussion once the union selects a full-time replacement for former executive director Billy  Hunter.
