LeBron James Leaves Cleveland for Miami

LeBron James Leaves Cleveland for Miami

Basketball superstar Lebron James chooses the Miami Heat as his next NBA team after an announcement at the Boys & Girls Club of America on Thursday (July 8) in Greenwich, Connecticut.

LeBron will be joining fellow All-Stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh down in South Beach to create a “superteam”.

The 25-year-old Ohio-born native will be leaving his hometown of Akron and disappointing Cavalier fans. During the broadcast, a Lebron James jersey was burned in Cleveland, to which he responded, “I can’t get involved in that. One thing I didn’t want to do was make an emotional decision. I wanted to do what was best for LeBron James.”

The Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks and the New Jersey Nets, along with their respective fans, were also all let down after learning of Lebron‘s decision.

Proceeds of $2.5 million from tonight’s hour-long program will be donated to the Boys & Girls Club of America.
