The 2010 NBA offseason has infamously been dubbed, “The Summer of LeBron,” since the kid from Akron decided in a much-publicized hour-long special to announce he was leaving northeast Ohio and taking his talents to South Beach.
But after the last couple of months have proven, 2017 can now take the title.

Okay, so LeBron James and the Cavaliers lost the NBA Finals to the Warriors and longtime Cleveland point guard Kyrie Irving reportedly wants out, but other than those minor details, can you remember a summer in which LeBron hasn’t had more fun?

Okay, maybe in 2016 when the Cavs brought Cleveland its first championship in 52 years. But other than that?
Think about it: The King and his court failed to defend their title the James went on a fun-filled summer extravaganza which started with one Instagram post.
Last month, Steph Curry appeared to making fun of LeBron at Harrison Barnes’ wedding with Irving egging Curry on, but the Warriors’ superstar said it was definitely not the case, that he, in fact, loved LeBron’s video.
So, nothing to see there.
