LeBron James knows how to improve the NBA and is planning to meet with incoming commissioner, Adam Silver, in the near future to explain just how to go about it.

The Miami Heat star spoke to the media after Tuesday practice:

"Hopefully I can sit down with the commish and just throw some ideas where I hope the league can get better," he told reporters.

Although he refrained from revealing the list of topics he plans to discuss with Silver, he did hint that he is supportive of league initiatives to bring the NBA to a bigger audience:

"The game can always be bigger.

"There's a lot of people who love the game who can't watch the game, so hopefully we can (expand it)," he said Tuesday.

The reigning MVP already has a working relationship with Silver, after meeting him on a number of occasions during the latter's time as Assistant Commissioner to David Stern, and is positive about what he can bring to the league:

"The opportunities I've had to be around him as he's been the assistant commish, he's been easy to talk to.

"He understands the business and someone who understands what the game means to everyone - the whole pie," James said.

And it seems it is the business, rather than playing, side of the NBA which LeBron has his mind just now. 

So with Adam Silver set to officially take up the role of NBA commissioner next week, he can count on the support of arguably the leagues biggest player as he plans the next steps for the national basketball association. 

Good news in the wake of Kobe's critical comments on the current situation.
