So, what you're saying is...well perhaps National Basketball Players Association vice president Roger Mason Jr. doesn't even know what he's saying.

Yesterday, in an interview with Jim Rome transcribed by Nick Schwartz of For The Win, Mason said that former teammate LeBron James would not play at the beginning of the 2014-15 NBA season if Donald Sterling is still in place as Clippers owner at that time:

If it’s not handled by… the start of next season, I don’t see how we’re playing basketball. I was just in the locker room with LeBron. At the end of the day, you know we have leaders. We have player reps, we’ve got executive committee members…. Leaders of the teams, they’re all saying the same thing, ‘If this man is still in place, we ain’t playing’.

Today, Mason took to Twitter to take a step back from those statements...leaving many to wonder what exactly is going on:

Speaking with USA Today before Game 5 of the Heat/Nets series, James indicated that he has faith in NBA commissioner Adam Silver's motivation "to move aggressively on the situation," saying the players will have "nothing to worry about" if Silver maintains his current course.
