LeBron James’ best decision since before ‘The Decision’
One superstar who, at least for now, is not looking into playing elsewhere is LeBron James, according to sources.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: This is LeBron James’ best decision since before ‘The Decision’.
Reports indicate that James, unlike many of his fellow superstars, has no desire to ‘take his talents’ overseas during what will be a long, drawn-out NBA lockout.
Europe isn’t the exotic-other of basketball locales. Players usually get paid late –if at all. This was before the issues in the P.I.G.S. –Portugal, Italy, Greece, and Spain are teetering on the verge of bankruptcy.
The facilities are often run-down. Training is harsh. Teams control a player’s life –like when and where they eat meals.
James gets it –and wants no part of it. He’d rather stay state-side, train on his own, run his businesses, and hope for a resolution to the lockout.
The risk of heading to Europe is greater than the reward. One superstar get this. Surprisingly, that superstar is James.
