Chris Paul shared his thoughts on several NBA superstars not being in favor of the league hosting an All-Star Game in March.
Paul said the league and the Players Association only focus on keeping the players health and safe, but they are also trying to find a greater consensus.
“There’s different situations. But guys who’ve been playing a lot of games who haven’t really had much of a break. I’m sure I’m not the only guy in the league that lives without their family.
And so guys look at that break as an opportunity to see their families. It’s a lot of different things going on right now. But you just hope that guys understand that decisions that are being made – especially as far as, the union has always got the full body of players in mind.
But emotions happen. Guys have feelings. And you’ve got to be able to express them. And I respect that,” Paul said, via Dan Feldman of Pro Basketball Talk.
NBA superstars, like LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Giannis Antetokounmpo, expressed their concern regarding the All-Star Game, amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The NBA is planning to host the All-Star in Atlanta on March 7.
