Before LeBron James became a free agent in 2010, the Cleveland Cavaliers did everything in their power to keep him, whether that involved giving his friends and business partners full access to the facilities or generally putting up with more fiddle-faddle than most teams do for their best players. At the time, it seemed like a necessary step to hold on to the best player in franchise...
