During the All-Star break, LeBron James was elected the union first executive vice president, and it was quite refreshing to see him sitting at his first National Basketball Players’ Association meeting with union leadership on Monday at the Four Seasons Hotel in Las Vegas.

Although many topics were discussed, including cameramen to close to the court and ‘collective bargaining agreement,’ players, who attended the meeting, took no action feeling that it is still to early.

It is a fact that the players want to pull in a large share of the nine-season, roughly $24 billion or $2.6 billion per year deal between the NBA, ESPN, and TNT, TV deal which will start pouring into the league beginning 2016.

But LeBron James spoke more of unity, union participation and power for the players and although he declined comment upon his exiting from the Four Season Hotel, we can remember back in October when he spoke about, how to maximize earning potential and the necessity for players to understand the business side of basketball.

One of the more lively subject and discussion led by LeBron James, Chris Paul, Andre Iguodala and Lou Amundson, was about getting on the same page as a union before any type of bargaining can occur.

Another highlight of this meeting was how LeBron helped the players understand the importance of backing up the union in other words him and Chris Paul broke it down, so it was absorbed and understood by the players, making the information clear so they can pass it on to their teammates.

After 12 seasons in the league and little participation in union affairs, Gooden commented that James was representing the voice of the other side.

“I’m glad he’s here to bridge that gap,” Gooden said.
