July 12, 2014 In 2010, just a short four years ago, times were different. Or were they? I wrote this post about no matter how much fans are happy or upset about a player moving from one team to another, for the player it is business and their lives. After watching several 30 for 30 episodes from ESPN, I'm even more adamant about it. LeBron is far from the first pro athlete to make a decision, a big decision about THEIR career and life. Watch the 30 for 30 films about Wayne Gretzky and Ricky Williams. It's nothing new. Remember when Jordan (no need for a first name, you know who I'm talking about) decided to retire the first time? So how is LeBron any different?
