As an iconic franchise that seeks to capitalize on LeBron James' late years, this development marks an immense boost. This season marks the 10th anniversary of The Decision and we're taking another look back to see what lessons can be taken away from it. It was an unprecedented move that caused shockwaves throughout the NBA and marked an era of player empowerment. 1. He Wants to Win LeBron James is not just an incredible basketball player; he's also a successful businessman and philanthropist. At 38 years old, this four-time NBA Champion and four-time MVP has amassed many honors on and off the court, such as numerous awards from NBA conferences. Additionally, LeBron has played an instrumental role in raising millions of dollars for charitable causes around the globe while serving as an amazing example to children worldwide. James has made no secret of his desire to win another championship with the Lakers this season, yet James remains determined to steer them back on course and bring home another championship title. James provides plenty of young talent the guidance and leadership necessary to reach their full potential and clinch another victory for their franchise. James had an exceptional postseason against the Warriors last time around, scoring 31 points in Game 4. However, they lost in Game 7 due to poor team play. Now, James hopes to put their loss behind them and lead the Lakers back into playoff contention for the first time since 2021. While much work must still be done on their behalf, James remains optimistic they can accomplish their goal. James also wishes to rebuild his legacy. Since joining the Lakers in 2018, he has left Cleveland behind, looking to build upon it alongside Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Jerry West who all left their mark as greats on this iconic franchise. James hopes to join these legendary names among others as he seeks victory on this path toward greatness. Even though his decision to leave the Cavaliers may have been wrong, he still has many people supporting him. His family relationships remain strong and he serves as an inspiring role model for children. Furthermore, he has worked hard at becoming an outstanding basketball player with numerous accomplishments along his career path. ESPN's Backstory series is offering some new details of LeBron James' controversial announcement ten years ago that he was leaving Cleveland Cavaliers for Miami Heat. At that time, Maverick Carter, James' manager at that time, had planned for The Decision special to raise funds for Boys & Girls Club of America. 2. He Wants to Be the King James made a bold move when he decided to stay with the Lakers, surprising many fans by staying. While some fans may still not support his presence or that of the team in general, having one of the league's premier players can only help lead back into playoff contention and ultimately the NBA Finals. Los Angeles may seem far away from winning, but they're only steps away from making an impressionful run at it. A trade of Russell Westbrook would give them a huge edge; but letting James leave means more than simply losing an incredible talent - they risk giving up potential owners too! IF the Lakers decide to release James, it will be interesting to observe his reaction. James has proven himself willing to go the extra mile in pursuit of winning, something all players should strive for. Additionally, his leadership of the Lakers has propelled them back into one of the top teams in the league once again. LeBron has proven his worth both on and off of the court, doing much charity work that has changed many lives for the better. He's managed to remain human despite the immense pressure that comes with being such a public figure, including when he saw several military personnel waiting at an airport for their planes to be filled up - he went over and greeted each one individually! He could soon reach retirement, yet could still change his mind about playing professionally. Already stating his wish to join Bronny when he becomes eligible in 2024 would help convince himself otherwise, yet should he decide it's no longer something he enjoys doing, it would surely be a sad day for the NBA. 3. He Wants to Be a Leader While much attention is focused on James as one of the top five players of all-time, an often neglected aspect of his legacy is how influential he has been as an off-court leader. James has broken new ground when it comes to athlete branding and roster building; changed how teams approach roster management; and influenced how players engage with business enterprises. Furthermore, James stands as an unrivalled advocate of teamwork promoting an attitude which emphasizes placing his teammates first above himself and using his platform against injustice and for charitable efforts. James has only ever made one misstep as a leader: The 2010 ESPN special known as "The Decision". Attempting to announce his future with Cleveland Cavaliers before joining Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Miami Heat was seen by both fans and pundits as an attempt at manipulation; fans quickly turned against him while pundits viewed this event as an ineffective PR disaster that created distrust between teammates, creating discord within teams themselves and between themselves and players on other teams. Evidently, James' charitable endeavors have not gone as planned from its inception. According to an episode of ESPN documentary series Backstory, agent Maverick Carter sold him on making his choice public with hopes that sponsorship revenue generated during a special would be used to fund local Boys & Girls Club chapters which have long been his charity of choice. Once The Decision had taken effect, James began to recognize his role as team leader and learn to build championship-caliber teams. He acquired sharpshooters like Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith that helped make Cleveland more formidable on both ends of the court. With the NBA season back underway, LeBron James now has an opportunity to repair any harm done by The Decision and demonstrate why his team needs him as its leader. Although a daunting challenge lies ahead, James seems confident and up for it. 4. He Wants to Be a Legend If you love basketball, chances are LeBron James is probably familiar to you. Chances are good that you may have seen him on TV or read about him in books, and perhaps you even had the pleasure of witnessing one of his games during his NBA career! Many may not know it, but James, who has been playing in the league for 20 years now, is also something of an icon outside of sports. He's taken part in charity events to benefit children, while appearing on magazine covers and movie screens alike. As soon as he entered the league, there was much talk of him becoming the next great American athlete and all this meant. Since then, however, he's gone beyond anyone's wildest expectations to accomplish more than anyone could have hoped for, yet still going strong today. One reason is because LeBron wants to be remembered as one of the greatest players ever - which explains his decision to join the Lakers and keep winning games. LeBron understands that by continuing his winning ways he'll cement himself into history's best players and ensure that his name will go down as one of those immortalised as legends. There were a few surprising details of "The Decision" that many viewers may not have known when the special first aired 10 years ago on ESPN. For one thing, Bill Simmons pitched it as the idea behind "The Decision". At All-Star weekend in February 2010, Simmons shared his idea with Maverick Carter, James' business partner at that time. Carter liked it as it offered an opportunity for James' promotion while simultaneously raising funds for charity. LeBron James chose the spotlight in order to win two more championships and cement himself as an icon regardless of where his future may lead him - hopefully only just starting now!
