    Coincidence that he decides to do this right when the BioGenesis report comes out saying there are NBA players on the list?

    His plan is definitely to use the position to fight against any drug tests.

    I actually don't believe what I just wrote. He ain't doping.

    Shane is already preparing himself for a broadcast gig after retirement from basketball.

    There is no way in hell the NBA would stop drug testing anyway.

    This is a stepping-stone for him being governor of Ohio.

    Chandler Parsons should run for this job just to piss off Lakers fans some more.

    Jason Collins should run, and also should get a gig for playing with a team.

    Is there a governor, or any high ranking politicians in recent history who have never attended even a single day of school in college?

    There must be many more qualified people for the job in the NBA. Otherwise it seems it would be actually his advisors running things.

    Has there ever been a big-time star in his prime to be the president of the NBPA?

    You would think it should be a veteran role player which the average player can easily relate to. Idk tho.

    Do remember Ewing at the end of his career (honestly that was as far back as I remember lol).

    That is interesting tho.

    Interesting how so many of those guys ended up as coaches or assistant coaches. Wonder if that is LeBron's plan afterwards lol.
