LeBron or NOTHING. Im suprised West didnt have a heart attack. How did you react when the envelpe with Detroit's logo was revealed, meaning that Cleveland had won the top pick? What were your emotions, your reactions? Did you realize at the time how significant an event that was?
For the record, I watched it in my friend's basement, eating Domino's thin crust pizza. I was rooting for Denver to win.
If the Grizzlies won Lebron, he would be on the Lakers with Kobe Bryant by now.
