NBA Free Agency Analysis: LeBron James Will Sign With Miami Heat

Matt WagnerCorrespondent IIJuly 8, 2010

There you have it folks. LeBron James, perhaps the most sought-after free agent in the last 20 years, has said he will pair up with Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh and suit up in a Miami Heat uniform.

This move will create the new "Big Three" in the NBA but perhaps ego could get in the way in a few years. Despite Wade and Bosh actively recruiting LeBron, if they win multiple championships, three superstars will most likely each be fighting for glory which could result in a Kobe vs. Shaquille situation. 

In addition, the big three each need to refine their skills to have decent chemistry. You will most likely not see LeBron dominating as many games using his scoring ability, but he will probably look to utilize his defensive and rebounding skills more often.

Based on what has happened in the free agency frenzy so far, you have to think that the torch has been passed to the Eastern Conference. The Heat have LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh, Amar'e Stoudemire agreed to a contract five-year, 100 million dollar contract, and finally the Boston Celtics version of the big three will remain intact.

Sure, the Western Conference still has the Lakers, but Utah and Phoenix have both been reduced considerably in recent years.

Also, LeBron said in "The Decision" that Erik Spoelstra, not Pat Riley, will be the head coach of the Miami Heat next season so that puts an end to those rumors. 

This was a good move by LeBron James regards to winning championships because if they gel, then they will be in the running for multiple championships down the road. 

So, LeBron James is now the newest member of the Miami Heat and this could possibly be an extremely good move if egos do not get in the way.
