LeBron James elected VP of Players Association: What is the legal impact?

On Friday, LeBron James was elected Vice President of the National Basketball Players' Association. He will join NBPA president (and James friend) Chris Paul and NBPA executive director Michelle Roberts as the union's leadership team. In a new column for Sports Illustrated I look at 5 ways LeBron's ascension to a leadership position could change the future of the NBA and alter union priorities for the next collective bargaining agreement. Will the NBA's age limit change? Will star players be able to earn higher salaries? Is the NBA more likely to expand abroad? Hope you have a chance to check out the column.
