LeBron really started a pro-player-anti-team movement. He basically showed that you shouldnt be loyal to teams since they can get rid of you at a moments notice because its just "business." He has given the players more power and I respect this.

Its a lot older than 2010, for example Vince Carter demanded a trade in 2004 and then allegedly played poorly on purpose until they traded him. Its always been players vs. FO and with each CBA, the players gain some edge.
