NBA superstar LeBron James is in the midst of a big decision. He will soon let the world know where he is going to play basketball next season, but he did have something to take his mind off of free agency last weekend.

Gerald Harris' knockout slam at UFC 116.

The slam was featured on ESPN's "SportsCenter" Top 10, and King James liked what he saw so much that he rewatched the slam a few times. From MMAWeekly.com:

"My friend is a good friend of LeBron's. He said they were sitting on the couch watching ESPN and LeBron saw the clip, and he had to DVR it. He kept rewinding it," said Harris. "So LeBron saw me! That was one of my goals. I've got to check that off the list."

Harris' knockout made list after list during the weekend, including ESPN's top plays during Monday's broadcast of SportsCenter. His finish actually landed two spots ahead of Brock Lesnar's second-round submission of Shane Carwin on the show.

Harris wrestled at Cleveland St. University, so you can bet he wants James to stay in Ohio for the rest of his career. James will let the world know of his decision Thursday night on ESPN.
