We are sure by now you have heard, seen or read that NBA player LeBron James will be making a decision as to which NBA team he will choose to play for next season. LeBron will be making his decision on a special program, “The Decision,” which airs live this Thursday, July 8, at 9 pm ET on ESPN. We are excited to be a part of LeBron’s important day and to be the official decision engine of the site LebronJames.com and one of the presenting sponsors of “The Decision” program.
Microsoft has a long-standing relationship with LeBron, including the launch of a website in 2007 – LeBron.msn.com, which was an inspirational, storybook-style Web site for kids and teens, that allowed people to explore his road to athletic achievement, his dedication to basketball and academics, his devotion to his team, friends and family, and his role as a community activist and people’s champion. The site won a Webby, the Internet’s version of an Oscar, for “Best Visual Design” in 2007.
Bing offers many features for sports fans, including instant answers for NBA athletes, like LeBron, as well as late-breaking news, video, social search results and more. Bing is thrilled to support LeBron on his journey, and most importantly, raise funds for the Boys and Girl’s Club via our sponsorship of “The Decision”.
