The people were granted anonymity because the process isn’t public. Roberts, if chosen, would become the first woman to lead the players union in any of the four major North American sports leagues. Members of the union’s executive committee, including President Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers and First Vice President Roger Mason Jr., in a press conference after their meeting declined to name the candidates or how many there are. “The NBPA will now implement a program that will allow players around the country to consider final candidates, discuss their merits internally, and convey their views to player representatives,” Paul said.

It seems the Heat are poised to guarantee the remainder of guard Roger Mason Jr.'s contract. The deadline is Tuesday, but Spoelstra spoke confidently about Mason being on the roster for the rest of the season. "We don't take him for granted or other players like that off the bench," Spoelstra said. "Roger, now, is gaining more confidence each game that he plays with our system. Those kind of guys are hard to find. They really are. To be able to sacrifice, to understand the big picture, to be available when we need him and to be able to produce and not be cluttered in the mind, I think a lot of teams would like to have a guy like him or some of the other guys we have."

The latest was broadcast to the world on Monday morning, again via LeBron James' Instagram account, with 15 players holding the gift each had been given by another teammate. How did this "Secret Santa" come about? "I was one of the culprits," James said prior to Monday's game against the Utah Jazz. "I never take full credit for anything, but I was definitely one of the ones. It was something we did when I was in Cleveland as well. I thought it was a pretty good thing to do. We had success for the first time." A couple of weeks ago, all 15 players drew a name out of a hat. "You had to get to know something about your teammate, and get a nice gift," Roger Mason Jr. said. With one rule. "There was a limit on price," James said. "You couldn't go below a certain number." Bleacher Report
