There was no one-hour special today. They didn't even wait for prime time.
There are two ways to view that approach.
Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade knew what they wanted, and didn't want to wait any longer to tell the world. They don't need anyone else telling them they're top dogs. They know it and are ready to prove it.
Seriously, Wade has a title and James doesn't.
But then there's the theory that Bosh and Wade's people went to ESPN to get their own prime time special and were told, "Sorry, you guys are second fiddles compared to The King."
We're going to run with the latter hypothesis.
It was James and everyone else in this process. So what—if anything—can Wade and Bosh do to get away from James' shadow?
