Well, it's official. The Chicago Bulls are not getting LeBron James for the next several years.
Instead, Derrick Rose, Luol Deng, Joakim Noah, and the newly acquired Carlos Boozer will be the Miami Heat's biggest competition in the Eastern Conference, and perhaps the league.
Experts from across the country (and even Justin Bieber) agreed all the way up to "The Decision" that LeBron would fit best with the Bulls. And yet he did not choose Chicago. Why?
He praised Rose and the rest of the organization on "The Decision," but ultimately claimed that he felt the Heat gave him the best chance to win right now. Is that the case?
I don't think so, but it was not my decision to make.
So, what factors hurt the Bulls in James' decision-making process? Here's a look at some reasons why LeBron spurned Chicago for South Beach.
