LeBron James’ Decision [yes, that's a capital letter] to move to Miami inspired me to reevaluate the course of civilization’s history. What are the moments? What are the moments that dictated the path by which our societies, governments, and unnknown influencers felt the desire to defy common dictums and oppose the common beliefs and practices towards a future that is clear to no one else but them. What are the Decisions that so shocked the world it ignited continent-wide uproars and centuries of resistance?
Below are those moments… behold the greatness.
10. Michael Jordan: Retiring from basketball, shifting to Baseball
Oh, I love MJ. This kind of a player doesn’t come only once in a lifetime, he comes only once – period.
Then, on October 6, 1993, he announced that he is shifting to baseball and all the world went, “What?”
He later explained that the death of his father and exhaustion of the Dream Team run shaped his decision to retire. Okay, but baseball?
Since then, mankind has learned to accept unfaithfulness. Yes, infidelity has been more acceptable. Sad to say, when we got our hearts broken so bad, we learned to adjust to the game of life.
That being said, when he announced his return on March 18, 1995, we accepted him with open arms. Of course, he thanked us back by winning three more championship.
9. Oprah Winfrey: The 25th season is the last season of the Oprah Winfrey Show
Oprah’s show has been on a downward spiral the last couple of seasons in terms of ratings. I don’t know if that made her decision to quit the show final. Nonetheless, on November 20, 2009, she announced that she is ending her show on 2011.
Her ratings has soared since then because we all realized that the last days with our loved ones are always the sweetest.
8. Conan O Brien: Goodbye to The Tonight Show
First of all, I think the Team Conan vs Team Leno fight was and is far better than Team Edward and Team Jacob.
Second, Conan was on air for seven or eight months. People could have very well supported him then. So stop crying your heart out that his show is gone. You had your chance with him.
Third, both of them were assholes at some point and Conan was an asshole first. Five years ago, he put pressure on NBC to give him The Tonight Show. FYI, that’s effectively saying “Kick Leno out, I want that show”. NBC caved by telling Leno, “dude, you have five years then your outta here.”
Fourth, I want to know when Conan is coming back on air because I miss the guy.
7. Ricky Martin: I am gay
Dude, the whole world knew back when you were 13!
The lesson? We have to tell someone right away that he is gay to save him the torture of trying to hide it. Just in case you haven’t noticed, there is nothing wrong with being one. When you hide it, it means you think something is wrong. Nothing is wrong with being gay. Deal with it.
6. Barker: Federer wins vs Roddick Wimbledon 2009
How long was the game? Six fuckin’ hours? My lungs were out. I was so sleepy. I was already irritated.
I was the happiest person when the announcer finally announced Federer won.
Without the barker realizing it, he made 30 million people happy with his announcement.
