(David) Carter (executive director of the Sports Business Institute at USC) said (LeBron) James’ move from a relatively small market in Cleveland to South Florida is akin to the 1988 NHL trade that sent Wayne Gretzky—hockey’s biggest star at the time—from Edmonton to Los Angeles, a move that gave the game new cachet in the United States and especially the Sun Belt.

One big difference, Gretzky went to LA with multiple Cups, LeBron going to Miami without a championship.
