LeBron James Admits He Has Zero Interest In An All-Star Game

The NBA is working out details to potentially hold a 2021 All-Star Game in Atlanta, which is certainly coming with mixed reviews from those within the NBA.

Can they do it safely? Is there really a point to it? Do the players want to attend? What's the opt-out look like?

Lots of questions still to answer, but if you ask the league's biggest name, LeBron James wants no part of it:

I have zero energy and zero excitement about an All-Star Game this year. I don't even understand why we're having an All-Star Game. Short offseason for myself and my teammates, 71 days. And then coming into this season, we were told that we were not having an All-Star Game, so we'd have a nice little break. Five days (in March) from the fifth through the 10th, an opportunity for me to kind of recalibrate for the second half of the season. My teammates as well, some of the guys in the league.

And then they throw an All-Star Game on us like this and just breaks that all the way up. So, um, pretty much kind of a slap in the face.

James hasn't been the lone player voicing his displeasure, as Sacramento Kings guard De'Aaron Fox also suggested it's strictly to make the NBA money and it's not necessarily safe for anyone to participate.
