LeBron James' hugely anticipated 'Decision' during the free agent market of 2010 was one of the biggest off-court events in the history of the NBA, but was not enough to prevent Kanye West from falling asleep.

James was an unrestricted free agent following seven seasons with the Cleveland Cavaliers when he took the decision to broadcast live on on ESPN his decision to sign for Miami Heat.

It was three years ago this week since James announced he would join Heat, and the anniversary presented the chance for one former ESPN employee to reveal a previously unknown incident to have happened on the day.

This is where Kanye West enters the story, with the hip-hop superstar turning up to get a front row seat as James prepared to reveal where the next phase of his NBA career would take him.

Courtney Cox - now a writer for - was the ESPN employee informed by a high-powered executive to find a seat for West, only for the partner of Kim Kardashian to doze off while James was speaking.

West was pictured at the event wearing sunglasses indoors - perhaps to hide his slumber - and Cox has confirmed he feel asleep, before leaving 'well before the end' of the decision.
