LeBron James will sign with the Miami Heat

Last week we asked “Where will LeBron James play next season?”

In the most intense Free Agent frenzy the NBA has ever seen, LeBron James has been the most coveted, sought after prize and even capitalized on it by setting up his own ESPN Special titled “The Decision.” During the special King James announced that he will sign with the Miami Heat. He said that he decided this morning.

LeBron’s decision to team up with other stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to play in Miami makes the Heat an instant NBA Title favorite. The Heat will need to put some other pieces in place to make it work but it is arguably one of the most powerful trios in the history of sports. It will be interesting to see how the Heat build their team around the “Three Headed Monster.”

Do you think LeBron made the right decision?

If not where do you think he should have signed?
