The NBA is considering the extension of the All-Star break to allow rest time for the players who participate in the weekend's events.
Adam Silver has spoken to stars such as Chris Paul, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade about a potentially longer break.
“I definitely think it’s something that should happen,” Paul said. “Obviously All-Star Weekend is all about the fans and showcasing our game to the entire world, but it would be nice to get a little break. Not saying the all stars are unhappy or ungrateful for being all stars, but to enjoy your family for a couple days would be nice.”
Added Silver: “I said, ‘We’d be happy to look into it.' The notion is that, in addition to the All-Star Game and the events itself, there would be a break built into the schedule. Maybe we could resume play on Thursday night, later in the week, to insure that the All-Stars got time off as well.”
