There have been plenty of controversies surrounding the resumption of the NBA season, as it seems like some players are forming a coalition to boycott it due to the Black Lives Matter movement.

Apparently, Kyrie Irving and Avery Bradley are leading a group of players that just don't want the season to restart, claiming it would be a distraction from the protest and social surprise caused by the murder of George Floyd.

However, LeBron James is reportedly eager to go back to the hardwood and, contrary to popular belief, he'd get the support of most players, according to USA Today and The NBA Central:

“Another person told USA TODAY Sports that as long as Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James still wants to resume the season, he will have the support of most players," The NBA Central reported.

It comes as a bit of a surprise to see LeBron wanting to come back to play considering he's always been a huge advocate for social reform and minorities, especially the black community. That's why some people think this stance could further stain his legacy rather than make him look better for winning another NBA Championship.

The situation continues to unfold and at this point is still unclear whether all players are actually going to make the trip to the Orlando bubble or will rather sit out to support the cause. Honestly, it's pretty hard to judge one stance or the other at this point. We'll have to wait and see.
