Lakers' LeBron James declines to say whether he'd get vaccine

Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James didn't want to give too many details after being asked if he was willing to get vaccinated during the NBA All-Star Weekend. During the NBA All-Star Weekend, NBA commissioner Adam Silver confirmed players wouldn't be required to get vaccinated but that's recommended.

"That's a conversation that my family and I will have. Pretty much keep that to a private thing," James said, per ESPN. "Obviously, I saw Adam had his comments about the vaccination. But things like that, when you decide to do something, that's a conversation between you and your family and not for everybody.

I'll keep it that way." James scored only four points but still Team LeBron easily beat Team Durant 170-150. "I hope so," James said, when asked if he had enough time to recover. "Is it enough time? I'll take any time, obviously.

So I'll take full advantage of the time that we have. Is it enough time? No, it's never enough time, but we're not on the side of time. I'm not on the side of time. I'll take full advantage of what I have and be OK with it."

James keeps his perfect record as a captain

For the fourth time, James was one of the captains and he got to draft his team for the All-Star Game. "I hope that they allow me to retire from being an All-Star captain, so I can retire with a perfect 4-0 record," James said afterward.

"I always try to pick the right team, and I've been lucky enough for four years to pick the right team. Guys go out and compete and play to win. I've been on the winning side of all four." Meanwhile, Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry scored 28 points.

"[The game] felt the same," Curry said. "The only thing is you can't really see the crowd in normal years, outside the courtside rows, but the energy is definitely louder, more engaged with more people.

"But the only thing that was really missing was the courtside kind of vibe. The who's who sitting down there, and just the energy down on the court. I remember watching it last year in Chicago and that was half the fun of the new format, the ending, was everyone who was courtside or in the lower part of the stands just all locked in and engaged in the game, and there's some dope photos of that. That's the biggest piece that was missing."
