We all remember “The Decision” on ESPN. Luckily enough, FanSided was able to track down one of the ESPN employees who was working on the set that day and they provided a behind the scenes look at the biggest free agency announcement basketball has ever seen.
LeBron James ultimately chose the Miami Heat, but before he was able to officially announce that he was taking his talents to South Beach, a famous guest at the announcement decided to leave.
That’s right. None other than Kanye West himself strolled in to the decision before he fell asleep and then left before anything was announced.
From FanSided’s “Behind the Decision” post from Courtney Cox:
I spend the first 15 minutes or so honed in on ‘Ye’s every move. He seems chill, he’s wearing his glasses indoors, and he’s not making sudden moves. I forget he’s there until one of the camera operators says, “I think Kanye West fell asleep.”
At the biggest non-sporting sports event in a while, Kanye West fell asleep before anyone announced anything. He was doing the church/school head nod and everything. Wake up, Mr. West.
He would eventually wake up and leave well before The Decision ended.
Yeezus, Kanye. Couldn’t you have waited a little longer before taking a nap?
At least he must have know how some people feel when listening to his new album.
