When LeBron James took his talents to South Beach in the summer of 2010, it was a revolutionary change not only in both Miami and Cleveland, but in the entire NBA.
That is not to say that changes haven't occurred down in South Florida or in Ohio. The Cavaliers are in the midst of an NBA record 26-game losing streak. Dan Gilbert looks absolutely ridiculous for his predictions that the Cavaliers would win a championship before LeBron James would.
The Heat, on the other hand, are red hot (pardon the pun). Miami has won seven in a row and sit just a half-game back of the Boston Celtics for the best record in the Eastern Conference. While one could argue that it has been a team effort and that Miami looked lost without Chris Bosh just a few weeks ago, the recent success must be credited to King James.
James is putting up MVP-worthy numbers, especially since the new year began. Earlier in the season, LeBron predicted that playing on the same team with Wade and Bosh would cost him a chance at the MVP, but that was part of the sacrifice of joining forces in Miami.
The question is: was LeBron James correct in his prediction?
