LeBron Center to Miami? Sportswriters pass out from the Heat...

We are still trying to figure out who is in a bigger frenzy about where LeBron Center will end up playing basketball. Is it sports fans or is it the sports media?

While fully realizing that one of the more talented basketball players in the current generation decides to make up his mind where he wants to play, it is of some interest. However, not the interest at the current levels.

According to the latest report with the latest...from Alan Hahn at Newsday, LeBron Center is going to go play in Miami with the Heat.

You can check out Mr. Hahn's story RIGHT HERE

While we sort of get the logic, he wants to play ball with his friends Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh; we don't yet understand why they will already be dubbed "Basketball's Greatest Team". Has anyone else noticed that they only have two players on the roster right now? Mario Chalmers and Michael Beasley.

While the 5 of them would be a nice starting team, we are pretty sure that they will need reserves. And for what its worth, with 3 near max contract players, there isn't going to be a whole lot of money available for those reserves. Sure, 3 great players, 2 good players and 7 D-leaguers will fill out your roster, but it doesn't guarantee anything.

Finally, will someone just tell the Sports Media community (us included) to please "SHUT THE HELL UP!". We heard you....oh....the 463rd time that LeBron Center is going to make his decision today. Does anyone who's job it is to write sports stories for newspapers and the 4-letter word think we don't know what's going on? We know the 4-letter word thinks that we are all stupid and that we should bow in there presence, but we heard you...really...we did.

Oh...and as for LeBron Center and his PR people, you do realize that the largely cynical sports and blogging community think you are a bunch of idiots....don't you? Come infomercial on the 4-letter word? Of all the arrogant, self-serving, ego-maniacal things that you could come up with for the announcement....that's the best you could do? Pretty sad. Though I guess since the 4-letter has given you most of their air-time for the past month, what's an extra couple of hours on a Thursday night?

Oh yeah...who's got money on whether the Heat story will happen or not?

For what it's worth, here is the LA Clippers pitch reel to LeBron Center:
