  • Everyone remembers "taking my talents to South Beach," but the weeks leading up to The Decision had several twists and turns and rumors that really did make it hard to say where LeBron's first foray into free agency was going to wind up.

    How was this the Most Important and Pointless Event of 2010?

    Lebron is the most coddled athlete in recent US sports history. Between the soft game, the rule changes, the horrible Eastern conference and the shuttle door free agency (not to mention the steroids) the guy is never questioned.

    As a Heat fan, I still thank Bron for making that decision. The most successful 4 years of Heat history was lead by him, including 2 championships. Neither the Heat or LeBron has had similar success since

    I live an hour from Chicago but I've never been a Bulls fan. From the get go I've loved Lebron. I wish he went to the bulls. He, drose, and the supporting cast would have been amazing

    Hold on you left out the knicks BUILDING A 80 MILLION DOLLAR HOUSE. WTF
    EDIT: sorry 60 mil but still the company i worked for confirmed that it was for a signing bonus for lebron if he came to the knicks. AKA THE STONE MANSION, which is a huge property now.

    4:06 “the knicks spent the past few years blowing every decent player to outer space to create cap space” they preceded to not get LeBron, seem familiar?
