    Default Report: LeBron To Pick Miami Heat

    LeBron James has decided to join Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami, according to multiple sources that spoke with Newsday.
    RealGM Note: The news of the 10-11 NBA salary cap being at $58.044M creates additional cap room for James, Wade and Bosh to get closer to a maximum contract.
    James is scheduled to announce his final decision live on ESPN at 9:00 PM EST on Thursday.

    I guess he really does care about winning several championships.

    I wouldn't mind if he signs with the Heat....I bet $25 on the Heat to win it all and I got 20-1 odds on that.

    So sick of Lebron, but for all those saying Dwayne and Lebron would not be able to coexist on the same team must not have watched the olympics. They play very well together and would be favored to win the next 5 championships, even without Bosh.

    I think this will be a fun experiment, b/c the expectations for this team will be HUGE! If they were to still lose to a team like the Celtics, Magic, or Bulls now with Boozer, if would be an utter disappointment.

    Why?

    Bosh is still soft, they will still need some players to do the dirty work.

    Wade and LeBron still need the ball in their hands, neither have ever played much without dominating the ball.

    Just because they are good friends is no guarantee that they will have good chemisty on the floor.

    It takes more than 3 players to win a championship. It takes a team with chemistry and the right role players in the right places.

    Yeah he can only kick our *** 2-3 times a year instead of 4. Also i think Cleveland would suck without him and we can be the 2nd or 3rd best team in the division and get that coveted 7th-8th seed.

    Alan Hahn of Newsday wrote on Twitter early Thursday morning that several sources are now putting LeBron James in Miami with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.


    We have speculated that the three have had a pact to play together for some time, and this report is from a fairly reliable source in Hahn and Newsday.

    That said, it's still quite possible bad information is being floated around by different parties involved in the pursuit of LeBron. But the Heat suddenly look like a favorite again.

    That is incorrect...He can kick our *** 3-4 times a year (2 games are played against out of conference teams). It doesn't matter if the Pacers are 2nd or 3rd in the division if they are still 9th in the conference.

    I'd take that 1 more game every 3-4 years for him to be on a worse team.

    If this happens, as a fan it will be fun.

    If you're a basketball fan anyway. Not if you're a fan of any other team competing with the Heat though.

    I think so, maybe not a major difference but definitely a difference. For one the top team in the division gets an automatic playoff berth, with Lebron leaving Cleveland that leaves the Bulls and Bucks as the top competition.

    It also means that 4 games against the Cavs just became more winnable within the division.

    It definitely has an affect on the Magic, Hawks, Bobcats and maybe one year the Wizards when it comes to seeding come playoff time as well.

    With the Cavs out of the equation I personally think it opens up another playoff spot b/c I don't see the them being very good without Lebron

    Once again not the biggest effects, but still enough to matter

    Yeah this could be bad info thrown out by Lebron's marketing firm just to drive up the suspense... I wouldn't put it past those self centered egotistical jerks...

    Thus the qualifier "that much" in my post. The effects are really not "that much" in the scheme of things involving the Pacers.
