Ten years after "The Decision," Brian Windhorst, Kevin Arnovitz and Nick Friedell recount the unforgettable week that nearly ended with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh choosing the Chicago Bulls over the Miami Heat.
After the ESPN premiere and the ABC encore and now as it heads to Netflix, "The Last Dance" still reverberates. The film shows us why, even in total victory, this larger-than-life superstar often looks so terribly small.
Ten years ago, on live television, LeBron James made his now infamous decision to leave Cleveland and "take his talents to South Beach." It was one of the most consequential, most awkward, and most divisive moments in sports media history. The long, drawn-out broadcast drew ire from Cavaliers fans - who felt their homegrown star had betrayed them - and also from casual observers who disliked the idea of an athlete wielding that level of influence. So how did "The Decision" actually come to be? Ahead of this Sunday's new episode of "Backstory," Don Van Natta takes us behind the production, introduces its key players, and examines how the event forever changed the way NBA stars interact with the public.

Brian Windhorst, Malika Andrews, Andrew Lopez and Kevin Pelton discuss the events of the past week and how the NBA community has rallied around the cause. Then, the crew tries to answer questions about the quality of games to expect when the NBA returns, if the "playoff-plus" format is fair and whether the league is trying to tailor its return plan around Zion Williamson and the Pelicans (16:00).
Nick Wright: 'The one thing that LeBron supporters have the ability to do that MJ supporters could learn from is acknowledging failures'
Bomani Jones welcomes his friend, FS1's Nick Wright to the show for the first time for a wide-ranging conversation. The guys discuss how much of the modern NBA post-1990 needs to be re-litigated when it comes to ranking the greatest players and competitive balance (1:03). Nick defends his LeBron James as "the greatest ever" take (22:21) and Bomani complains about group projects again (34:15). Plus, what is the tipping point for sports news coverage on social activism in light of the George Floyd tragedy (44:19).
