In comparison, the last time LeBron James left the Cleveland Cavaliers, back in 2010 when he joined the Miami Heat, he had a whole show dedicated towards his announcement called The Decision. When he left Miami to join the Cavs in 2014, it was an exclusive Sports Illustrated story.

Cavs owner Dan Gilbert wrote a classy letter dedicated towards LeBron. It was a much different response than his scathing (slightly racist) 2010 letter when Bron left the first time around.
