In LeBron’s Nike commercial, he asks if he should abandon his friends who’ve been with him since the beginning. Sorry, kid, but the answer is “yes”. There are people in this world that get paid millions of dollars to make decisions that LeBron is relying on his homies to make. His decision to have The Decision and even go to the Heat are questionable at best.
I’ve said it a million times before: LeBron would have won way more championships with the Bulls than he is going to win with the Heat. The Bulls have a complete team with Rose, Boozer, a bunch of bigs and a decent bench. Also, Chicago would still have been James’ team. But, that’s my opinion. It’s debatable whether or not he made the right call. A [flimsy] argument can be made for The Decision. In the grand scheme of LeBron’s career, these events will pass.
But LBJ’s crew ruined one of the most important potential moves for his legacy and career.
For those of you that don’t know, Tinker Hatfield is the legendary shoe designer behind Jordan’s most popular kicks. He’s literally almost single-handedly made the Air Jordan brand the monster it is. He worked on the first few editions of LeBron’s shoe, but his crew apparently pissed Hatfield off too much to continue.
Peep the video to hear it from the man himself:
If this isn’t a wake-up call for LeBron to reconsider his surroundings, I don’t know what is. He may not care now, but getting someone like Tinker to jump ship is a S.O.S. that LeBron hopefully won’t ignore.
