Can You Blame Lebron James For Choosing The Miami Heat?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Lebron James got a lot of flack for leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers to play for the Miami Heat.

You can not blame Lebron when you look at the caliber of the two players he is with now.

First, lets look at Dwyane Wade who was the number 5 pick in the 2003 National Basketball Asssocition (NBA) draft. He won the 2006 NBA Championship with Shaq. And He was also the Most Valuable Player (MVP) in 2006! In year 2008, Dwyane Wade won a gold medal in the Olympics in Beijing. He was also the highest scorer in the 2008 Olympics. A NBA scoring champion in 2009. Dwyane Wade has been chosen 7 times as NBA All-Star. Wade's jersey was the number one selling NBA jersey for 2005 to the mid-2006 year; nearly 2 years!

In year 2004, Dwyane won a Bronze in the Olympics in Athens. But, this was not considered as great a feat in his career as his other accomplishments! Who really remembers number 2 winners, when you did not win the gold?

Then, LeBron James had a choice of playing with Chris Bosh. Another 2003 NBA draft pick, who was the number 4 pick. Chris Bosh has the all time leading scoring record with the Raptors NBA basketball team. Chris is a 6 time NBA All-Star from (2006-2011). Guess who also helped the 2008 Redeem Team win a gold medal in Beijing? Yes, that is right...Chris Bosh!

If you were LeBron James, it would be evident why the Miami Heat was a no brainer NBA team to join!

What other team has the trinity of scoring power and combination of All-Star NBA players... that can change the whole outcome of a NBA basketball game in seconds?

Yes...Lebron James could of stayed with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Chris Bosh could of stayed with the Toronto Raptures. But, now we have One of the most exciting series without the Los Angeles Lakers dominating their numerous appearances in the NBA Finals. It actually started to get boring watching the Los Angeles Lakers repeatedly going to the Finals.

Now, the dynamic three are here to make their presence felt! The quick rotations in defense are lighting up Magic Johnson. Magic Johnson commentated he never saw such fast rotations on defense in a finals series.

Lebron James is 6 foot 8 inches. Lebron James can match up with anyone on the basketball floor. This causes terror in the small men on the court, when Lebron James rotates swiftly to a smaller defender.

Who said you had to play man to man or zone defense? Now the Miami Heat created a new defensive style called Phathom Defense.

You can not tell who will end up on which man when the ball goes up for a shot.

They are going to be tough to beat. As the season went on the trio of James, bosh and wade only seemed to get better. I think the heat will take it in 5.
