Perhaps the most sought after free agent in NBA history, two-time MVP LeBron James, will be joining the Miami Heat this fall. James joins returning superstar Dwyane Wade and new acquisition Chris Bosh, who spent seven seasons with the Toronto Raptors. James announced his choice during a nationally televised program on ESPN titled “The Decision” on Thursday night.
James stated that the deciding factor in his decision was to play for a team that has an opportunity to win not just one, but multiple championships.
“Winning is a huge thing for me,” James said. Contract details are still being worked out, as both Bosh and James will likely make less than maximum deals, which they would have earned by staying with their original teams.
