Sixers draft pick Joel Embiid was one of the early campaigners to get LeBron to Philly. In fact, many would argue that we was the sole voice on this issue

His efforts were unquestionably rigorous. Long were the nights James undoubtedly spent at his computer or phone, wondering how, just how, this kid from Philly was getting in his head. It was supposed to be such a straight forward decision. But Embiid provided perfect arguments for James' every doubt.

Sadly, though, James says he never would have left Miami for anywhere but Cleveland. But we'll always know the truth.
