How did LeBron James become the most hated person in professional sports? He made a bad decision
. And I’m still amazed someone in his inner circle didn’t stop it. “The Decision,” as it was publicized, was an epic public relations disaster. It instantly hurled a spotless NBA superstar into America’s number one villain. Like many people, I watched the entire hour-long show because I couldn’t believe James and his team would do something so stupid, not because I cared where James was going to play basketball.
