Clippers' Beverley: If LeBron says he's playing, we're all playing
James reportedly did not participate in Friday's conference call, during which multiple players, including his Lakers teammates Dwight Howard and Avery Bradley, expressed concerns with restarting the season in late July.
Howard argued basketball's resumption would be a "distraction" amid ongoing protests against racial injustice and police brutality across the United States. James, however, reportedly believes playing in Orlando will not hinder his ability to inspire change.
Despite the differences in opinion, unnamed Lakers players said Sunday that there is "no divide" within the team surrounding the season restart.
