King James is going to Miami

The story:

LeBron James put the NBA on notice Thursday night, joining Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami.

Ending weeks of silence and drama, the two-time MVP said on his ESPN special from Greenwich, Conn. on Thursday night that he's decided to join the Miami Heat and leave the Cleveland Cavaliers after an unsuccessful seven-year quest for the championship he covets.

"The best opportunity to win and to win now and to win in the future also," James said. "Winning is a huge thing for me."

It's a huge victory for the Heat, who got commitments from Wade and Bosh on Wednesday. That duo, along with James, formed the upper echelon of the most-celebrated free-agent period in league history.

Something left out of this story: ESPN dedicating an hour-plus of time dedicated to a guy who hasn't even won a title yet! Was it worth it, ESPN? Whoring yourselves for an overrated, Michael Jordan wannabe?

you know the saying about the straw and the Camels back? Well this is it. An Hour dedicated to King Lebrick's Ego. America is too far gone. We ain't comin back from the brink folks. This was the jumping of the shark. Next will be the three hour special to announce Pau Gasol's bowel movements.
