Danny Green, James’ teammates on the newly-minted NBA champion Lakers, believes it could happen, but wonders what kind of physical condition James will be in at that point. “I think he would love to,” Green said in a phone interview to announce The Battle Basketball Showcase on November 20th & 21st at the Allen Event Center in Dallas that will feature Bronny James and Sierra Canyon against Emoni Bates and Ypsi Prep (MI).
Storyline: LeBron James Retirement?
Danny Green is promoting an initiative he joined between the NBA players’ union and the company Dove. The initiative seeks to change the way Black men are represented in advertising and other forms of media as well as show support for policies that promote public safety and voting rights. One piece of legislation for which they advocate is the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, a comprehensive police reform legislation that was passed by the U.S. House of Representatives in June and is headed to the Senate.
Green sees changing stereotypes about Black men as an important step toward that. “There’s a reason why certain stereotypes become certain stereotypes,” Green said. “Because you hear it over and over. You used to hear it over and over. If we start a new stereotype or a new mantra or a new M.O. for certain types of people, if we keep saying it over and over it’ll become the new norm for us. We’re not as harmful or as violent as people make us seem to be, people will respect us more, support us more.”
Now that he’s won a third NBA championship — and second straight — Lakers forward Danny Green is turning his attention to the next generation of basketball stars. Green and Gold Level Sports & Entertainment are sponsoring The Battle Basketball Showcase on November 20th & 21st at the Allen Event Center in Dallas. The Battle high school basketball showcase will feature six elite high school teams with their respective nationally ranked players competing head-to-head.
The marquee matchup of the event will feature Lebron “Bronny” James Jr. versus Emoni Bates. James Jr. and his Sierra Canyon (CA) team will play as the club team the Trailblazers, while Bates will compete with his new Ypsi Prep (MI) squad. Fresh off winning his fourth NBA title with three different teams, LeBron James will likely be in attendance to support his son.
