MIAMI (AP) -
LeBron James of the Miami Heat reaffirms that he's pleased with the initial response from NBA Commissioner Adam Silver to racist remarks made by now-banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.
Players union vice president and former Heat guard Roger Mason Jr. told Showtime that James will boycott games if Sterling is not removed as owner. But after the story escalated Wednesday, Mason Jr. tweeted that James "never said anything about boycotting."
James says players see what Silver's doing and that if the commissioner continues moving aggressively, "then we have nothing to worry about."
Sterling was banned for life from the NBA over his comments. The league is in a process that would lead to the Clippers owner being forced to sell the club.
