While we await LeBron James' decision, this is how some fans reacted 4 years ago


Back on July 8, 2010 everyone tuned into the LeBron James The Decision TV special on ESPN. A year later, I thought it would be fun to cut a selection of fans reacting to the moment he said he would be joining the Miami Heat. With his latest decision pending, there will be plenty of instantaneous reactions from fans of multiple NBA teams. So here's a look back at the HHH archives from 2011 for this Fan Reaction compilation of the Decision.

Pau Gasol is sitting on a beach, pondering which team to sign with


It's no secret that Pat Riley has recently discussed with free agent big man Pau Gasol the possibility of joining the Miami Heat. Several other teams are actively recruiting him, including his former team the Los Angeles Lakers. Now a decision from the Spaniard appears to be coming soon as he contemplates free agency. "No better place to relax and think about my decision," he writes. Although it's unclear how much Riley could have offered Gasol, no doubt any pitch from the former Lakers coach has to resonate with any free agent as he ponders his future and a quest for more rings before the sun sets on his NBA career.

Greg Oden pulls a Focker, hits girl in face with volleyball spike


After a season where he may not have had a large role with the Miami Heat but was still able to return to NBA action, Greg Oden got together with some friends in the offseason for a nice round of volleyball. Things presumably went well, until Oden went for a casual spike right on a girl's face, though she's lucky that he didn't go full force with his power and seems to be okay. And hey, at least Oden is successfully jumping around during the summer. That counts for something. The big man signed with the Heat last August on a two-year deal with a player option for next season at approximately $1.14 million. (H/T to The Big Lead)
