The Ego Has Landed: LeBron To Heat

The Drive. The Fumble. The Shot. Game 7 of the 1997 World Series. And now, The Decision.

As expected, LeBron James added to the sports psyche wounds of Cleveland fans by announcing he is leaving the team to sign a contract with the Miami Heat where he'll join buddies Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. We feel for our neighbors to the east in Cleveland. LeBron, you've crapped on their (collective) heart on national television.

Details of his contract were not announced.

Clearly, this means the free agent frenzy results in disappointment for the Bulls as they spent a lot of time clearing cap space only to fail landing any of their top three choices.

Benjy will be up tomorrow with more on what this means for the Bulls.
