    You answered your own question.

    Me? I'll follow the Wizards as they slowly rebuild around John Wall and maybe in 2-3 years they can be kinda like the Thunder are now. As for the rest... yawn.

    well it's not like the Heat made this happen over night, it's been a long process and things just came together.

    No it pretty much happened overnight.

    Season ends: Miami clears cap
    2 Days ago: Wade and Bosh sign
    Now: LeBron signs

    Heat will be everyone's favorite team all of a sudden.

    I bet they don't even make talks of a championship run after the all-star break.

    Lebron just killed his own "legacy".

    Good move by LeBron. I'm not sure if it's better than Chicago, but probably about the same. It will be interesting to see who they can bring in to help out. I'm guessing they can get some serviceable players. The only gaping hole they have really is center. It won't matter though. What they have right now has to make them the odds on favorites for the title and they will only get better every year as every vet takes the minimum to come win titles. Bynum will be a big mismatch, but let's wait and see what kind of move they can make.

    Btw, I lol'ed when you said Artest will shut down LeBron.

    go to the Cavs website and the whole front page is a big letter the Cavs owner wrote dissing LeBron James.

    The Cavs should have gotten him some help 2 years ago. they knew he wasnt happy with the roster. and now they act surprised he is gone.

    Shaq, Antwan Jamison, Jamario Moon, and Leon Powe. James didn't win a title because he can't do it as "The Man."

    Well, I am not too happy with LeBron's decision. I really thought one of the New York market teams had a real shot at signing him. Turns out he was only In Greenwich, CT for a wedding or some crap. Guess the Nets and Knicks will continue sucking, and Boston and Miami, maybe Orlando too will continue running the Eastern Conference. This is good for the NBA tho. Now they have three heavy hitters in the Celtics, Magic, and now the Heat. Surely it'll be one of those three fighting the Lakers next June. I'm excited to see how these three do in Miami. They've been trying to set this up for a while, and when it became an option they all jumped on it. I think the only reason this is bad for LeBron is in terms of his brand. Now he'll have to chill out with the ego and play team basketball. Cleveland had no business having LeBron.

    If C.J. isn't resigned within the next 9 months, look for Nashville to be the next Cleveland in 2013.

    1. The NFL has the franchise tag, so CJ isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
    2. The Titans might not have been historically great as an organization before CJ, but they were respectable before and will be after he leaves.
