Roger Mason Jr. now says that LeBron James never mentioned boycotting

NBPA’s Roger Mason Jr. made a bold statement on the Jim Rome show about the status of LeBron James and other players in regards to Los Angeles Clippers “owner” Donald Sterling. Mason claimed that if Sterling were to remain owner of the Clippers franchise that LeBron James and other players were set to boycott next season.

“If it’s not handled by… the start of next season, I don’t see how we’re playing basketball,” Mason said. “I was just in the locker room with LeBron… At the end of the day, you know we have leaders. We have player reps, we’ve got executive committee members… Leaders of the teams, they’re all saying the same thing, ‘If this man is still in place, we ain’t playing’.”

Rome followed up: “So your guy LeBron, you think he would not play if Sterling were still in there when the [next] season started?”

“I was just in the locker room three or four days ago. LeBron and I talked about it,” Mason said. “He ain’t playing if Sterling is still an owner.”

Well it didn’t take long for Roger Mason Jr. to backpedal on these statements. Mason Jr. took to Twitter to explain what he really meant to say.

  • If Lebron never said boycott, why did Roger say “they aint playing”? He totally flip flopped on this one.
