There is a spectacle about everything in Canada. If you got TSN, you'd see free agency, trade deadline, the draft is like LeBron all the time.
Also, there is no comparable in hockey at all for where LeBron going and what it means to the league. Half the league has created gigantic cap space hoping for a star. LeBron is the biggest one, but it is the beginning of many chain reactions. Even though there is no comparable, if this was Crosby, it be just as big as in Canada.
As for talking about LeBron, big deal. We have argued the same points about Brodeur for 4 months. It's a slight change of topic in mid July for one page.
As for 'The Decision', it was a bad move by him that was probably the fault of his people around him, but it was still for a great cause and delivered gigantic ratings.
The NHL sort of had that with the lockout draft lottery where everyone had a chance for Crosby.
