LeBron James: His story tells us a lot (coming next week)

July 10, 2010 | Drew Forrester

I hope you’ll make it a point to check out WNST.net next week and follow along as I study the LeBron James story in what will probably wind up being three or more parts.

I was quite fascinated by LeBron’s “decision” last week and have closely followed the aftermath, both locally and nationally.  People who don’t even follow the NBA all that much have an opinion on The King and his move from Cleveland to Miami.  People who consider themselves ardent NBA supporters are either WITH James or AGAINST him.  There’s not much middle ground.

Next week’s series – beginning on Monday – will look at it all from my viewpoint, touching on the subjects of the story that made it one of the most followed and combustible sports events of the last few years:  race, greed, friendship, hero worship, success and failure.

I hope you’ll come back next week and read along — and provide comments if you feel like making a contribution and having your point heard.

I should say, some of the subject matter might not be totally suitable for the young sports fan in your family, so please keep that in mind.
