Jim Gray, the interviewer who tossed Lebron James softball questions during the infamous "The Decision" broadcast last summer, says he has no regrets at all about doing the one-hour ESPN special in which Lebron decided to "take his talents".....well everyone knows what happened that night. In fact, everyone remembers where they were that night. I was at a steakhouse that had happy hour all day, every day in San Antonio. I booed a little. I'm getting off track.
In Gray's only interview to date about "The Decision", he joined the Dan Patrick Show to candidly answer some questions about that infamous broadcast. One interesting thing he mentions is that the idea for the one-hour spectacle was originally his idea.
Read a transcript of Jim Gray's interview here, and join me after the jump for a couple questions of my own.Mr. Gray, did you really think that the one-hour live broadcast was primarily just a way to "explain it all to the fans at one time where he is deciding to go?" If anything, this was a media event that was all about Lebron.
Mr. Gray, are you really surprised at the fact that there was "so much" criticism in the wake of the TV special? I certainly wasn't too surprised by the jersey burning. I'd do the same thing if Jared Dudley left the Suns.
What think ye of Jim Gray's LebronLove, Bright Siders?
