Lebron James fans may have different opinions regarding the decision of the "king". The Cleveland fans can be easily understood about their sentiments, being left by a primetime player. Miami fans, have the opposite reaction to Cavs fans though. They acquired one of the best players in the league in Lebron James. Getting Lebron just means a lot of positive vibes for Miami. With Wade and Bosh also signing in Miami, the new so-called "Three Kings" definitely has a lot to prove in the NBA. They may be the new big three but there are still tough teams around that they need to go through before they earn a championship.In the Eastern Conference, they still have the older big three and the defending Eastern Conference champion Boston Celtics. Don't count the Orlando Magic out as well. Out in the west, they also have to prove themselves to the defending champions Los Angeles Lakers. It's true that the trio of Lebron James, Wade and Bosh has made the Miami Heat into title contenders in Kobe Bryant Beatspaper but they haven't proven anything yet until they win the Larry O'Brien trophy.
Cleveland to Miami. It was a move that LeBron James felt he had to make. He needed help, needed to be surrounded by a stronger supporting cast, and needed to be paired with another superstar (or two) if he was going to start winning all those championships he was destined to win.LeBron left Cleveland after his team was bounced in the 2010 Eastern Conference Finals by the Boston Celtics. That series gained a degree of infamy on the basis of LeBron's mysterious disappearing act in Game 5, where it appeared that he shut it down and accepted the fact that the Celtics had the stronger team. "The Decision" that followed came during the summer after that series, with LeBron picking the Miami Heat over a number of other suitors in order to form an unstoppable wrecking crew.Lebron James Beats
Advantage: Push. Shaq (38 at the time) and Big Z (34) were clearly on their last legs during the Cavs playoff run that year, while Anthony and Turiaf provide the Heat with energy and hustle plays but no offense to speak of. These players seem to net out, as even in his advanced state Shaq could still score (11.5 PPG in the playoffs) but was a complete liability on defense, whereas the Heat's centers can defend but are liabilities on offense.2009-2010 Cavs: J.J. Hickson, Antawn Jamison, Jamario Moon, Anderson Varejao2011-2012 Heat: Chris Bosh (has missed the last nine playoff games), Mike Miller, Shane Battier, Udonis Haslem, James JonesAdvantage: If the Bosh-ster were playing this would be a no-brainer, but with him on the shelf I'd go push again. UD and Varejao are both grinders who's overall contributions mirror each other, while Jamison's 2010 playoff stats (15.3 PPG) exceed the combined efforts of Battier (5.2 PPG) and Miller (5.7 PPG). At this stage of his career Battier will make the occasional three from the corner, but he mostly brings to the table an inflated defensive reputation. Miller has some good games and bad, but more often than not is laboring up and down the court like the Spiderman Beats By Dre qian1032blog RSMYLQX121207
