Commercial Success?

By Jared Boggs, published on Oct 27, 2010

The NBA season is set to kick off tonight with two games on TNT. While I look forward to seeing the new look Heat and defending champion Lakers in their respective match ups, what I am not looking forward to is the new LeBron James Nike commercial that will surely be shown ad nauseum.

Cleveland Burns as LeBron Joins Miami Heat

By Jeff Weisinger, published on Jul 9, 2010

They say nothing lasts forever. With that in mind, maybe Cavs fans, let alone the rest of the NBA should've seen this coming.

LeBron James' decision to not resign with his hometown Cavaliers and to join All-Stars Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami for the 2010-11 season was expected after rumors swirled about James flying down to Miami to meet with Heat president Pat Riley before Thursday night's 1-hour ESPN special "The Decision." James posted on his @kingjames Twitter account "The Road to History begins now." shortly after he landed in South Beach last night.
