The wait is over after months of speculation as to where free agents LeBron James, Chris Bosh, and Dwayne Wade would end up for the 2010-2011 NBA season. Basically, get ready for a dream team. All three of the basketball stars are headed to Florida to play for the Miami Heat.
LeBron made the most of his announcement, holding an entire special titled The Decision on ESPN Thursday night. After he made is choice public on the TV, LeBron put out a brief statement on his website saying, “Next year, I will be playing for The Miami Heat. I would like to thank all of my fans for supporting me and I am looking forward to seeing you guys next season as I chase the NBA Championship.”
LeBron also tweeted this morning after landing in Miami about his decision, saying that “The Road to History starts now!”
Toronto Raptors fans may be disappointed about losing the team’s franchise player, but Chris Bosh has had nothing but good things to say about the city. In a statement on his website he said, “I’ve loved every minute here and I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart”.
In a statement released by the Miami Heat, Dwayne Wade said, “there’s magic in the number 3. This is the beginning of new chapter in HEAT history and very exciting for both fans of the Miami HEAT and the NBA.”
With such amazing talent all in one place, there is definitely potential for a championship and it may also sway some bandwagon fans to get behind the Heat.
So, who are you going to be cheering for during the upcoming NBA season?
