When LeBron James announced his intention to take his talents to South Beach, the landscape of the NBA inevitably shifted, for better or worse.
As Charles Barkley said: "If you're the two-time defending NBA MVP, you don't leave anywhere. They come to you. That's ridiculous. I like LeBron. He's a great player. But I don't think in the history of sports you can find a two-time defending MVP leaving to go play with other people."
Well, what happens now that the League's two-time defending MVP has decided to jump ship in Cleveland and head down to Miami?
One thing's for certain: The MVP race just got a lot more interesting. With Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh taking away shots and possession from LBJ, he's no lock for an MVP three-peat. In fact, he can't even be considered the favorite anymore.
