A top executive of the NBA Players Association says Miami Heat superstar LeBron James has told him he’s prepared to lead a player boycott if the situation surrounding Donald Sterling’s ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers isn’t resolved by the start of the 2014-2015 season.

“I was just in the locker room three, four days ago. LeBron and I talked about it – he ain’t playing if Sterling is still an owner,” NBA Players Association Vice President Roger Mason Jr. said on this week’s edition of “Jim Rome on Showtime.”

The episode airs Wednesday night at 9 p.m. on the network, which CBS owns.

Sterling may have made things worse for himself when he went on TV to apologize for making racist comments that got him banned from the NBA.
