During NBA All-Star weekend, LeBron James would not confirm whether or not he plans to get a COVID-19 vaccine, saying he'll keep that decision private in a Sunday media appearance.
James was responding to a question from a reporter following comments from NBA Commissioner Adam Silver on Saturday that the league will not require players to get vaccines.
Silver said that he believes "most players" will ultimately choose to be vaccinated regardless.
"My hunch is that most players ultimately will choose to get vaccinated," Silver said speaking in a virtual press conference during All-Star Weekend.
Asked on Sunday about Silver's comments and whether he plans to get vaccinated himself, James didn't give a definite answer, and said that he'll likely keep any decision on vaccination private.
"That's a conversation that, you know, my family and I will have. Pretty much keep that to a private thing," he said.
"Obviously I seen Adam had his comments about the vaccination and what not. But things like that, when you decide to do something, that's a conversation between you and your family and not for everybody, so I'll keep it that way."
