On, or about, June 24, 2014, the world of sports as we know it was forever changed. LeBron James opted out of his contract with the Miami Heat. This was a mega shock that was created by a mega star. Nothing like this had ever happened before and no one was prepared to process this kind of information.
This was not just a Sports Superstar, this was King James himself! Everyone was wondering, "What is he going to do?" There was a possibility that he would remain with the Heat. Then, many people believed that he would join the Clippers, Knicks or the Lakers and thus put himself into a major market.
James was not saying anything, and the pundits were having a feeding frenzy. Many of them pretended that they had "sources", which were giving them inside information. We now know that they did not know any more than the rest of us. However, they also knew that you cannot just go on television and say, "I don't have any idea what he is going to do."
Meanwhile, back in Los Angeles, the Sterling's were having their battle royal. He was fighting the NBA, his wife Shelley, their doctors, and anyone else who came into his legal range. Shelley was fighting Donald and his super friend, V. Stiviano (formerly known as Maria Vanessa Perez). Among other things, Shelley wanted her to return a Bentley and a condominium. Ms. V did not think that this was a good idea, and she responded by wearing a shield over face.
