In what could be considered as one of the biggest moments in the history of basketball and a crucial change in the NBA, LeBron James and “The Decision” changed the course of the league for years and still continues to.
Eight years ago, LBJ decided to take his talents to South Beach and play for the Miami Heat with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh and he got hell for it.
In an interview for the new ESPN+ show More Than An Athlete, LeBron, Maverick Carter, Rich Paul and Randy Mims look back at that moment and the fall-out that came as a result of it. Maverick mentioned that he was hurt because of the backlash against his brother, while Rich can recall the quietest plane ride he ever took in his life.
Just this past week, King James returned to The Land in another uniform and his reception by the hometown fans was the opposite of that in 2010.
