Most everyone, LeBron James included, agrees The Decision was a bad idea. 

What we didn’t know—until now—is that the NBA tried to stop it from happening. Former NBA Commissioner David Stern called the television program “terrible” in Ian Thomsen’s book The Soul of Basketball.

It is fair to say that we knew it was going to be terrible, and we tried very hard for it not to happen.”
