More than two years of hype, drama, conjecture and expectation have dwindled to a few more hours.
LeBron James' big moment is here - not as an NBA champion but as a free agent. There will be no parade, no ring ceremony, no banner raising.
Instead, on a prime time made-for-TV special his handlers contracted with ESPN, James will announce Thursday night where he'll play next season and beyond. Fans from coast to coast will tune in to watch, with the ones in his home state of Ohio praying they won't have their hearts broken again.
The Decision, it's been dubbed.
In Cleveland, they can only hope it doesn't join The Drive, The Fumble, The Shot and The Move in the lexicon of sports misery.
