Bill Simmons on Lebron James' Decision

You must read this in the next 10 hours because, after that, Lebron will no longer be a free agent. Here’s my favorite bit.

Red Flag No. 1: Wade and Bosh (who have the same agent, by the way) hired documentary crews to follow them around. As any reality-show junkie knows, if there’s no drama, you have to manufacture it. Well, how could a free-agency documentary (or reality show, or web series, or whatever they do with this footage) have drama if both guys decided where they were going weeks ago? You’d have to center it around Wade’s upcoming divorce, or Bosh struggling to decide whether to stay with his girlfriend or hook up with those gorgeous half-Cuban, half-who-the-hell-knows models that only exist in South Beach. And neither guy would ever do that. So what works? Indecision. Meetings. More meetings. A lot of “agonizing.” If this footage ever sees the light of day, I bet the acting is worse than your average episode of “The Hills.” You wait.
