Live TV idea for LeBron's decision came from fan

NEW YORK • Nearly 10 years after LeBron James announced his decision to play for the Miami Heat on a live show on ESPN titled The Decision, the network revealed on Saturday that the idea for it actually came from a fan.

This confirms a long-standing rumour, as a person identified only as "Drew" from Columbus, Ohio, proposed the show in a mailbag column published by then-ESPN writer Bill Simmons. It ran on Nov 26, 2009 – more than seventh months before The Decision aired on July 8, 2010.

For a story published on Saturday, ESPN managed to reach Drew – 38-year-old Drew Wagner, who is actually a Detroit Pistons fan – and he confirmed the idea was his.
