LeBron James, Rajon Rondo

Before you lace into Rajon Rondo for his comments in a taped conversation before this season started, keep in mind he isn’t alone — at least in how he ranks himself against the league’s best. Rondo has won a title, and he’s been an All-Star. He is not, however, one of the top 3 players in the league like he said in the video after the jump.

Adam Silver Respects Players’ Views, Prefers They Abide By Dress Code

LeBron James

The preponderance of players wearing “I Can’t Breathe” shirts during pre-game warmups in lieu of league-mandated apparel puts Adam Silver in a tough position. He can’t in good conscience fine Derrick Rose, LeBron James, and company, but he also can’t sit idly by and watch the dress code be flaunted.
