Four years later, I’m stateside for LeBron’s latest announcement.
He’ll dominate the news cycle for the weekend. There’s a reason he announced it at 12 PM Eastern Time on a Friday. What are people going to talk about? The WNBA? AFL? The World Cup Final? Nope. It’s LeBron’s Weekend. Again.
But I don’t forget where we’ve been. And neither should you. For your reading pleasure, we’ve collected our articles surrounding LeBron’s 2010 Decision. Enjoy, reflect, comment.

Mr. James has been studying all summer to prepare for the new NBA season, but has anything really changed?
In preparation for the start of the NBA season tonight, why not read some of our season previews from last year?
Nothing much has changed, right? Right?
Even if there have been things that have changed over the summer, most of the information is still good— I’m not changing anything in my Clippers or Lakers preview (or for the Lakers, maybe I’ll just add this on). Read the rest of this entry »

The Celtics have an obvious offseason strategy. Their problems last year were their age and their lack of athleticism. So, what do they do? They release Tony Allen (for the record, young and athletic and could defend LeBron/Wade). Then, they pick up Jermaine O’Neal (who lost his youth and athleticism long ago) to replace Kendrick Perkins. Now they have reportedly picked up Shaq (see: Jermaine O’Neal parentheses).
So to recap, they had a problem with their old age and not being able to respond to athletic teams, and in this offseason they got older and less athletic (all due respect to Von Wafer, although I think that goes without saying).

If you had pets, do you remember your parents detailing the virtues of taking your aging, and often failing, pets to the farm? This mysterious farm that had acres and acres of open fields filled with mice that your cats could play with or tennis balls your dogs could catch. You thought, “I don’t want to give up my beloved friend, but if (s)he is going to be happier, then who am I to stop this?” You let them go, comforted by the fact that your pet would be better off.

Chris Paul wants out of New Orleans. I don’t know whether to be happy that there is an NBA story not circling around the Miami franchise or to be sad that CP3 wants away from New Orleans. Read the rest of this entry »
