Yes, the topic of the week has been LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh. Many have spread rumours that they coordinated the whole thing over some beer and chicken during the last season.

Whatever you want to call them, whether it's the three stooges, or the three amigos, it doesn't make a difference, they're coming after every team with something to prove.

Many have predicted this trio to choke because they are all ball hogs. This might be true, but after checking some statistics, I find it hard to believe this would be an issue come next season.

Chris Bosh averaged three assists per game (I know you critics are ready to attack this statistic), but Bosh compliments this statistic with an average of 10 rebounds a game.

Moving on, Dwyane Wade averages seven assists per game and always contributes to overall game play.

The final statistic that I found surprising was LeBron James. Many call LeBron James a ball hog, but LeBron actually has the best assist average between all of them. His average is eight.

I truly believe the Miami Heat management did their homework before they signed these individuals to big contracts. LeBron, Dwyane, and Chris all know what each one of them are capable of. Knowing this, they will share the ball equally in order to find the chemistry within them.

Now the question remains, what happens if they choke? What is success for the Miami Heat now? What happens if they don't win the NBA title in the next three years? Will it be a disappoint on the part of the organization and the players?

Will the three amigos head for the border? This is serious! LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh are on a crash course landing if they don't execute a championship.

LeBron James ran out of Cleveland, will he do it again if he doesn't succeed in Miami?

Please don't take this as an insult towards the Miami Heat, I respect the fans of Miami and understand their excitement on the behalf of these great signings. But something tells me that if they don't bring a championship title to the Sunshine State, a lot of questions will be asked.
