Danny Green made an interesting statement about LeBron James and his plans for the start of the 2020/21 season.

The forward of the Los Angeles Lakers believes James (a four-time NBA champion and Finals MVP) could miss the start of the season in order to rest.

“Most guys, if we start in December, [are like] ‘I’m not going to be there’. It’s not like we have a bunch of young guys and rookies…‘Bron has been in the Finals 10 years out of his 17 years.

To have that quick of a restart, I wouldn’t expect him to be there. I wouldn’t expect to see him for the first month of the season,” Green said on The Ringer NBA Show.

The NBA plans to start the new season on December 22. If that happens, it will be 71 days between Game 6 of the NBA Finals and the season opener.
