Oh yeah, it was Paul that made that decision....certainly wasn't Silver coming to the NBAPA stating you have to do this or you're going to lose most of your money this coming season. Certainly wasn't put to a vote by the Union cause we all know the players have no say... C'mon man, think it through before you type. The Players VOTED in the majority for this season and the ASG. The union is all about the players and the players vote on everything, including this condensed schedule, since most players would have been hurt financially with no season. Lebron knew the players would vote for the season, he was upset it was even offered by the league in the first place. As for LeBron and CP, well Bron calls him one of his best friends and Bron was courtside supporting CP and the Suns for game 5.

Chris Paul says all players had voice in much criticized condensed schedule
By Kurt HelinJul 5, 2021, 11:00 PM EDT
Chris Paul heard LeBron, but when asked about the condensed 72-game schedule this year, he said a lot of players had their voices heard.
“Man, one thing about our league and its players is everything is always a conversation,” Paul said during his media session the day before Game 1 of the NBA Finals. “There’s a ton of guys on the executive committee who are working hard on things right now as we speak — day in and day out, traveling. I wish you guys knew all the things that are going on. So decisions that are made as far as playing or not playing, players are always involved in it.
“Injuries are always unfortunate. You hate to have them. But just like when we went to the bubble, everything was discussed as far as the players and the full body of players. Everything that’s good for this guy and that guy might not be the same for that guy, but everything has always been a conversation and it’s going to continue to be that way. So if people don’t like it, then you know everybody has the same opportunity to be a part of all these conversations.”
