First of all, I would just like to say that Kobe got robbed in the ESPY’s Wednesday night for Best Male Athlete.

July 09, 2010 - Miami, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES - epa02243320 LeBron James (R) joins with Miami Heat Dwayne Wade (C) and Chris Bosh (L) greet fans during NBA basketball team Miami Heat's 'HEAT Summer of 2010 Welcome Event' at the American Airlines arena in Miami, Florida, USA, 09 July 2010. The Miami Heat reached an agreement with LeBron James to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers, and sign with the Miami Heat.

3-4 years ago, those infamous free agent talks started. Perhaps the biggest question was, “Where will LeBron James go?” The people in the Big Apple have been preparing for the arrival of King James for God knows how long. The club started clearing cap space way before 2010 just for him and it really started to look like that LeBron was headed for New York. Honestly, even I was expecting him to become a Knick. But, it just goes to show that really “anything can happen in the NBA.” The one hour special, all the free agent talks, all that hype. It all led to one answer. Miami Heat. Before I forget, he’s going to be joined by Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade. Wait, what? Yeah, Pat Riley pulled it off. Again. Next: Potential Trouble in Paradise…
