LeBron James chooses to play for Miami Heat

July 9, 2010

LeBron James ended months of speculation and drama on Thursday, July 8, 2010, during a nationally-televised special titled, “The Decision,” broadcasted on ESPN. The decision by LeBron to join two other superstars in Miami, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh, brought cheers to Miami fans and made Pat Riley look like a wizard for being able to conjure up a formula for a possible new dynasty. Likewise, fans in Cleveland and the State of Ohio were heartbroken to see the loss of their homegrown hero.

Now the sporting world can end speculation, and focus on the possibilities of the upcoming NBA season. Although it appears the trio may have a good chance to bring a title to South Beach next year, many analysts are not going to jump on the bandwagon so quickly. Most are waiting to see how each superstar adjusts to their new role and waiting to see who Pat Riley is able to put around the All-Stars.

On LeBron James’s Twitter account, he invited people to post their reaction to his decision and stated that he will post his reactions at #lebrondecision during the evening. LeBron James’s good friend, Chris Paul, tweeted on his Twitter account in response, “Glad bron finally got that off his chest…NO ONE can possibly imagine how tough that decision was for him…wish him all the best!!!” As of the time of this posting, LeBron already had 361,199 followers on his Twitter account.

This type of activity on the Internet is part of a growing trend among celebrities, which is to connect to their fans through the micro-blogging site, Twitter. Twitter allows celebs to be instantly connected and spontaneous.
