The decision was a sign of the times.

The whole operation – from the TV cameras, the rumors, the ad time – was so 2010.

In front of news cameras, LeBron James announced he will be leaving Cleveland and is going to Miami as a free agent.

How does this relate to PublicCEO’s usual government message? Well, it’s a stretch, but it’s a discussion that relates to taxes. Florida is a beautiful thing for athletes looking to save income tax dollars.

Tax dollars can chase away stars – athletes, professionals, or businesses – and California’s high taxes are driving away tax revenue by squeezing all of the above.

It’s a stretch … but LeBron’s decision is a sign of the times.
