Dr. Boyce Watkins: LeBron James Chooses the Miami Heat

by Dr. Boyce Watkins, Syracuse University 

I hate to say "I told you so," but sometimes it’s just kind of fun to brag a little bit. As I wrote the other day, LeBron James made his announcement tonight that he is going to join up with Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade with the Miami Heat. The announcement wasn’t a big surprise, since I presumed that LeBron would rather play with the greatest talent pool in the Eastern Conference rather than against it. There were some, however, who thought that teams like New York and New Jersey had a chance. No, they did not.
New York makes money and has a massive media market, but the Knicks have stained their organization’s reputation by showing that they don’t care much about winning. Overpaying mediocre players and not managing their team properly has made them appear as undesirable as the "Kentucky Celtics" were when Rick Pitino took over and tried to bring his entire college roster to the NBA with him.

    Why do sports analysts make this kind of money to be watching TV for an announcement that many people made HOURS ago?? Labron says only a handful of people knew of his actual decision, but hed did NOT mention the people who booked those 6 Florida beach houses for this weekend was the absolute finality it was Miami.

    PLUS, Cleveland was NEVER in my analysis after all the Cleveland press who made the press reports that Labrons mother had been involved with onew his own teammates, and you HONESTLY believed that he was going to come back and have to look this teammate in the eye everyday that has slept with his mother? You’ve got to be kidding ! He would never have a days peace in Cleveland, so Cleveland was never in my analysis.
