Because everything LeBron James does is a big deal, James’s decision to exercise the early-termination option in his Miami Heat contract and again become a free agent was a very big deal this week.

“I don’t know what the big deal is,” (Kevin) Durant said, shortly after his “KD7″ was revealed. “You know, as a player, I think that’s the best way to go about it. You can have all your options. It’s better for you as a player to opt-out, because you can get a market deal, you can get more years.

“I don’t think it’s fair,” Durant told a small group of local reporters. “I don’t think anything that you guys criticize LeBron [about] is fair. He switched teams; he’s not the first guy to do it.”
