  • Published on Jun 30, 2018
  • 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.

    Is this the same guy who can’t take off 23 because of his Nike sponsorship’s and also is the self proclaimed goat because it doesn’t seem like it.

      Rob Kirschtein and considering most people thought he got his head blown off. Seeing that he made another appearance to tell Lebron to come to the Knicks is hilarious

  • greg the groove :: drum covers

    The fact that you wore almost the exact shirt LBJ wore is an epic THUG LIFE MOMENT!

  • greg the groove :: drum covers

    So if I understand this correctly, The NY Knicks have committed suicide because nobody signed with them back then, including LBJ, twice. Once with LBJ and now none of the 856 free agents did the same. BABABAHAHAHA

      And Kwahi is really going to need a doc to prescribe an exceptionally good 'load management' for his 'frail' body.

    Lots of big ticket free agents left Cleveland. We’ve been through it. We can handle it. It’s the way he did it that was pretty crappy.

    hearing now the backstory of what happened the two choices personally in my opinion were the Miami heat and Chicago bulls LeBron would make the big three with Miami or Chicago so he could have very well picked Chicago and won 2 championships with Noah and Rose

      @Carter H There's only 1 ball, if Kawhi went to the Lakers he would have had to sacrifice parts of his game to fit with the others. This has happened every time a big 3 formed.

      Lmao so humble yet he got PG13 to straight up demand a trade while on contract for 3 more years to just join him. I hated the way LeBron left in 2010 but Kawhi's was worse.
