(Jim) Rome asked what would happen if (Donald) Sterling is still in the Clippers picture when next season starts.

“If it’s not handled by…the start of next season, I (Roger Mason Jr.) don’t see how we’re playing basketball,” Mason said. “I was just in the locker room with LeBron (James)…At the end of the day, you know we have leaders. We have player reps, we’ve got executive committee members…Leaders of the teams, they’re all saying the same thing, ‘If this man is still in place, we ain’t playing.’”

Rome continued.

“So, your guy LeBron, you think he would not play if Sterling were still in there when the [next] season started?”

Mason replied that he was “just in the locker room three or four days ago. LeBron and I talked about it. He ain’t playing if Sterling is still an owner.”
