That’s right, we’re talking all LeBron on Episode five of The Crossover (click here to listen) this week with Brian Yeung and it was so huge we had to break it into two parts.
On Part 1, our resident hoops expert and I breakdown LeBron James’ big “Decision” last week: what it meant, how we viewed it and if this sort of spectacle was the right thing to do (it wasn’t)…
Plus, we’ll try and think of another possible sports defection that comes close in comparison, and if you’re a fan of professional wrestling, it won’t surprise you.
We’ll also attempt to delve into what this move from Cleveland to Miami means for LeBron’s legacy and if he can still potentially be viewed as one of the top players of all-time now that he’s joining forces with Dwyane Wade, who is someone already with an NBA Championship. Does LeBron now become second fiddle? Or can he still be “The King?” Questions we’ll probably not come close to answering, but we will discus.
And don’t forget to tune in tomorrow for Part 2 where we talk about “What Now?” for the Miami Heat. Dwyane Wade called this the greatest trio in NBA history; can they live up to the hype and bring home the Larry O’Brien Trophy? The Eastern Conference is now loaded, but can anyone take down the Lakers? That and a whole lot more tomorrow on Episode V - Part 2.
As always, thanks for listening, and spread the word!
