Lebron James Is Joining Wayde and Bosh in Heat - NBA

Updated on August 29, 2012

Lebron James Decision to Join Miami

Lebron James Is Joining Wayde and Bosh to enjoy the Heat of Miami

Its final, Lebron James is joining Bosh and Wayde in Miami Heat.

The waiting time is over and finally the most awaited announcement was done. Lebron chose to be with Miami and chase the championship trophy which is lacking in his credentials.

To many of you who have been a friend of mine here, you know that I love to watch sports -- a woman who loves sports be it football, basketball and soccer. I always anticipate the month of September not only because of the fall winds but because of NFL or the March to June months where I could yell in front of the TV watching basketball.

Much have been told about the move, so I don't like to dwell about it anymore, to my thinking all is said and done but the fact still remains, he put himself first. Is it wrong or right, well, ask his mom, Gloria who is always a big factor in his decision making.He said it is not about the money, what is it then about fame, championship, isn't Lebron James only in his mid twenties -- chasing the dream no player ever had? Surely he will have more MVP perhaps, but championship, who knows?

Do I sound Like I am disgruntled like his fans? Yes, I was disappointed a bit, but I realized that it was difficult for him. He played on the media, people and the stakeholders who are chasing him. But I was still hoping he will be with Cleveland until the end even if he puts a lot of us into waiting. I should have known better. i value loyalty above all, that makes a man a man and what makes a person a person. Without loyalty, you can never go anywhere.

Before this hoolaballooo, I always side with Lebron James because I always side with a team who is always considered-- a no win team -- and I always wanted the Cavaliers to win, even when they play with my favorite team Celtics. Yes I cheered with the Cavaliers because I wanted them to win at least one championship. They needed that to uplift their spirits when the recession sets in at Ohio. Just like The New Orleans saints which I also cheered during the Super Bowl 2010 last year. Good for the Saints they won, but the Cleveland never saw the lights with winning.

Yes, loyalty -- to the expense of personal motives or perceived gains, what would championship trophy will do to his career, then it is already now? He is already a two time MVP player of the most prestigious professional basketball league in the world

LEBRON JAMES -- DUNKS MOVE

His Mom Gloria -- Lebron James always decides whether his personal life or professional basketball life. But how old is he anyway, still young? Scapegoat is always an answer. I am a mom too so if my son will tell me this, I am honored but then I will let my son decides unless he cant decide? Can't he?

Lebron James -- A Big Man with a Heart of A Child -- Obviously he want to play with his favorite players he said, even though in the past he said that he loves Chicago team and always a fan of Chicago Bulls, where does his loyalty lies, we don't know really. He just wanted to be with Wayde and Bosh and probably get that championship trophy.

His personal ambition to get a championship trophy -- who wouldn't want a championship trophy, but what else does he likes to prove, we know he is good in basketball already, and the main reasoning that He needed somebody like Shaq for a championship, I thought he could win alone, if he is that great? Well let us see, if he can get the team Miami a championship. Obviously he thinks that Bosh and Wayde and him are like the tandem of Celtics, Garnett, Pierce and Ray.

Who Won? -- Miami and the new ballclub because of the many endorsements and money James bring in, well, I simply don't care a lot about the owners of ballclubs, they are rich enough. I care for the fans who shouts, line up and cheer their players. They are the ones who make the play so exciting, imagine a play without the fans watching.

For the reaction of the owner of the Cleveland team Open Letter to Fans from Cavaliers Majority Owner Dan Gilbert. And another side of the story : Venom From Cavs Owner Validates James’s Exit.

      I would be amazed if James and the Heat can win a title in less than 3-5 years. The rest of the Heat just won't be good enough. In 5 years the Lakers and the Celtics will be too old, and maybe the Heat can get more good players by then. You can't win with three guys, no matter who they are.

      James should have at least told Cleveland ahead of time he was leaving. The whole deal about keeping it a secret was just for television. If you know where you're going, why not tell Cleveland? It was childish but, as you pointed out, James is only 25.

      If he wanted to win a title, Miami wasn't as good a destination as Cleveland or Chicago. They seem to think Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett didn't have any help when Boston won in 2008, but that was a good and deep team.

      Well, Maita, it will be interesting to see what the next NBA season will be like.

      Hi Maita! Your excitement and enthusiasm flows down the page! As always, I found it both fun and enjoyable to read your hub. I am, of course, a Chicago Bulls fan. I live in Chicago and watched them win their first and last championship. Since Jordan left, I stopped following basketball and became a --shhh--Tiger Woods (i.e. a golf)fan. You are so versatile. You have so many interests.Oh, by the way, I will be taking my first Zumba class today! One thing more: I modified my setting for hubpages to alert me whenever I have a comment on my page. Up to this point, I had turned it off. Stupid me. Anyway, Maita, how are you doing? And keep hubbing.

      Mike, that was a good input from you, and I always trust your analysis on basketball, and yes he did not tell it and did enjoy prolonging the announcement, the media is helping it -- the hype I mean, You are right, let us just wait. Although, I also doubt if Miami will have a championship in the next three years, hmm, we don't know the ball is round though,

      Thanks a lot for reading, Maita

      Well Miami will definitely be a contender.But the question is will there be enough basketballs on the court for all three of those players. I still think he would have been great for Chicago though. I do feel sorry for Cleveland because now they are back at square one with an Old Shaq

      Ate' Maita sweetie; sports of any kind is not something I can get into or excited about. Florida can have him and whatever he is being paid, if it's over 35 thousand a year, it is way too much for playing some sport he obviously likes to play anyway.

      Good for him! He even took less money to go to Miami. I have to say - this is better for his family which should be a consideration. The Knicks organization has really been tacky (to put it nicely) - in recent years. He is wise to stay FAR away!

    • Stevennix2001 profile image

      Steven Escareno 6 years ago

      You make a lot of valid points here. Personally, I think LeBron James has every right to change teams if he wants to. After all, owners don't have any loyalty to players (look at the Shaq and Kobe fiasco a few years back). Therefore, why should we expect players to have loyalty to owners? Having said that, it's the way he left Cleveland is what severely p***es me off more than anything.

      First of all, I don't care what the hell he says, I'll still go on record to this day that he did NOT wake up on a damn whim coincidentally the same day he scheduled a press conference to announce his decision. Seriously, what sane person does this?

      Second of all, I firmly believe the three of them planned this from the start. I don't think there was any possibility that James was even remotely considering the Nets, Bulls, or even the Cavs.

      No, he was going to Miami all along, but he wanted to stretch it out to create drama. The signs were there. From them coincidentally having their contracts end around the EXACT SAME year to be free agents. To the so called summit meeting to discuss their futures. To Pat Riley being a complete arrogant fool to empty out his entire roster practically just on the off chance he can get all three of them. I know Riley is a great salesman, but he's not that freaking good. I'm sure he knew this was going to happen the whole time, but he was kept to secrecy. Think about it. Would you get rid of your entire roster just so you could sign three players that may or may not play for you. I certainly wouldn't. Not unless I had an inside source telling me that I had a great shot if I did.

      Then we can look at the texts Bosh sent on his twitter page saying this statement after him and Wade met with the Bulls, "The meeting with the Bulls went great, but it feels like SOMEONE is missing." hinty hint hint. Get it?

      Then you have to wonder why didn't wade and bosh make a plea or make any attempt to convince LeBron to come to Miami the night before "The Decision." While other players for other teams were trying to text and call him to lure him away to their prospective teams. Why is that? Perhaps Bosh and Wade already KNEW his decision, so that's why they didn't want to say anything or feel the need to publicly.

      No, this was all good theater set up by James right from the start, as he must think we're all morons to honestly believe he woke up on a damn whim to make his decision. Seriously, we're not stupid.

      As far as him acting selfishly, I can't say I'm surprised anymore after talking to a few people about this. After all, you have to remember, the media and his own cavs team kind of helped create him. Think about it. He never once got called out by the media for not winning the big one like Donovan McNabb or Peyton Manning, before he won his super bowl. No, it's never been his fault for never winning the big one. No, the media always blamed the Cavs for their inability to surround King James around a talented group of players. Not once did anyone call him out when he quit and didn't play as hard as he could during the Celtics series last season. No, again James was given another pass. Thus, James never once had to be called out on anything from the media. No, he was excused from any and all blame. He was above that.

      Plus, you have to factor in that since he was like 14 yrs old, reporters would often put a camera to his face and ask him how's it like to be considered the next Michael Jordan. Plus, I wouldn't be surprised if endorsers gave him large sums of money before he was drafted into the NBA. Therefore, why wouldn't he have a massive ego? Ohio created him. They gave him every excuse to develop an ego over time. Seriously, you hand a poor black kid from the hood a bunch of money, and anoint him the next Jordan, then what do you think will happen? you think he'll be humble about it? No, he'll more than likely develop an massive ego. Therefore, we shouldn't be surprised. However, I just hope for James' sake, he's able to put his ego in check when he has to share the spot light with Wade and Bosh in Miami. After all, that was the only reason the big 3 concept worked in Boston because every player played unselfishly. If James truly is a team player like he claims, then he'd better keep his ego in check in Miami and bow to Wade's leadership, as that's his team. If not, then I doubt they will ever win a title together.

      I haven't cared for sports since Larry Bird retired. I used to play all this stuff and watched but it's too emotional and physically draining to a negative degree. Next we're emotional about politics, etc. The seesaw/roller coaster never ends.

      Having said that I agree with you Maita. But most athletes and stars are in a dream world. Our heroes are floor sweepers mine sweepers. American "business" teaches people to be sharks, maybe even hyenas for money.

      I was never on the LA Laker wagon. I pulled for McHale, Parrish the Chief, Johnson, Ainge, and that magnificent Larry Bird. The Lakers had that incredible bench but the best 5 were the Celtics. And they did it injured. They were more fun to watch- even if they lost they were winners.

      Lebron doesn't appear to have the "class" that could make me follow him or any of the current others. Thanks Maita!

      _cheryl_ 6 years ago from California

      I was a bit surprised that he didn't stay with Cleveland. But I can respect his choice. Obviously money isn't an issue, I think he's at a point in his career where he needs to go the direction it takes to increase his chances of a championship. I didn't understand the whole drama behind it all with the one hour deal about his decision. I do think it's ouf of line for the fans that take it to heart do things like burn his jersey. But to each his own, just like Lebron's gotta do what he's gotta do. In the end he's the one who lives with his decision. I'm definitely a fan of Lebron and where ever he chooses to go with his career. =)
