It may be hard to believe but it has only been five years since LeBron James hopped onto ESPN for a live special with Jim Gray to announce that he would be breaking the hearts of the greater Cleveland area taking his talents to South Beach.

Re-live the experience in all of LeBron’s checkered-shirt glory above.
