    Six years ago, 25-year-old LeBron James sat on ESPN as the network celebrated his achievements for a full hour in the presence of millions of people who were watching at home. Ultimately, he decided to leave Cleveland for the warmer shores of Miami, and “The Decision” was widely panned due to how he handled his free agency process.

    Fast forward to 2016, and Kevin Durant is getting killed on social media networks for doing what we all perceived as the ‘right way’ to handle a free agency period.
