A Year After the Decision
This time a year ago, an event occurred in an crowded Boys in Girls Club in Northeastern Ohio that forever shifted the balance of power in the NBA as well as change the destinies of several franchises. LeBron James, the then-reigning two time NBA MVP, fresh off another disappointing early exit in the NBA Playoffs, announced to the world that he was leaving Cleveland and “take his talents” to Miami to join forces with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in sunny Miami.Click the pic to enlarge.
There were various highs and lows in the season that followed; Miami stumbled out the gate as the new Big 3 tried to learn to play together on the fly and the Cleveland Cavaliers showed just how valuable LeBron truly was, losing a NBA record 26 straight games. The Heat would wind up figuring things out in time for the playoffs and would finish two wins shy of a championship; the Cavaliers would stumbled to the finish line, but wound up with the number one pick in the NBA Draft. Do you think, in hindsight, that LeBron made the right decision? And do you think “The Decision” will go down as one of the biggest events in NBA history?
