LeBron Joins Miami

2009 NBA Miami Heat - Dwyane WadeImage by RMTip21 via Flickr
LeBron James walked away from the comforts of home to chase an NBA championship. Perhaps the most hysterically-hyped free agent in sports history, James announced Thursday night on national TV that he plans to leave Cleveland to join the Miami Heat for a chance to play with Olympic teammates Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.

It's a power trio that could rock the league for years to come.

"I can't say it was always in my plans, because I never thought it was possible," said James, who wrestled with his decision for weeks. "But the things that the Miami Heat franchise have done, to free up cap space and be able to put themselves in a position this summer to have all three of us, it was hard to turn down.
"Those are two great players, two of the greatest players that we have in this game today."
Add in James, and Miami has a three-headed monster.
Ending weeks of round-the-clock speculation, the two-time MVP said he was uncertain until the eleventh hour before deciding that the only way he could fulfill his dreams of winning multiple championships was to leave his home state and a city that hasn't sprayed championship champagne in 46 years.
See ya, Cleveland.
Sorry, New York, Chicago, New Jersey, Los Angeles and all you other NBA cities who came calling.
Hello, South Beach.

"It's going to give me the best opportunity to win," James said. "We're going to be a real good team."
