That's pro sports, breh. I'm gonna have to start mentally preparing a year ahead of time to deal with Lincecum going to the Yankees.

Yeah, but the superstar mentality and culture is much more prevalent and important in the NBA then in any other pro sport.

I think that could have to do with how many guys per team matter, honestly.

On a baseball team, all eight batters need to be solid on defense and at the plate, and without at least three or four solid starting pitchers and a half-dozen reliable guys in your bullpen, you're toast. On a football team, you're looking at 22 guys who play half the game each, plus special teams is so vital for winning. Hockey, sure there's only six guys on the ice at once, but don't most teams want a solid backup goalie and three or four full lines of skaters?

In basketball, really only 10 guys play, and really only 8 of those have to contribute in any real way on a championship team. Hell, Ohio State had a six-man rotation last year and won the Big Ten. I think that kind of weight on the shoulders of the starters breeds some of that culture.

Dude's not a winner or a leader, and he definitely proved it. And if there were 8 minimum salary guys that worked their asses off, rebounded, and played defense, they'd be making more than minimum salary. Wade/LeBron/Bosh (who is exeptionally over rated) are each going to be playing a ton of minutes all year. I don't see this working, unless a patriots like situation develops, where good players are willing to take less money for a chance to win a title.

This is going to be intresting to see how it plays out. I would be beyond happy if the Heat did not win a single title with the James/Wade/Bosh trio. In all honesty I don't even know if they can win a title with their current players I don't think they will be able to get much of a bench going and that could be the difference maker.

This (although the way he did it was somewhat shitty, which was covered in other posts).

This. However, LeBron did say in his interviews last night that all three of them would be / are willing to take less money to make it work - although who knows what that actually means.

I don't blame him for leaving and I figured he would but, the way he left was not necessary. He just should have told Cleveland after Game 5 "Look I love this city and these fans but, it's not working and I need to go elsewhere." Sure, it would have hurt but, it would have been better than last night.

Besides, everyone knows Miami fans are just Dolphins fans looking for air conditioning.

James is Commissioner Gordon. When he's in trouble, he'll sit back and call on the dynamic duo of Wade and Bosh.

I personally love that ESPN is taking a wrath of shit over the whole 1-hour special. I refused to watch but I'm guessing it was worse than being subjected to Glee for an hour
