Bucher: LeBron Met Riley in Miami Tonight

From ESPN txt updates:

Rich Bucher: LeBron James flew to Miami Wednesday night for a meeting with Heat president Pat Riley.

Well if this is true, there’s no doubt in my mind we will be seeing the new age Big Three forming in Miami and their names are Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and LeBron James. This would truly put a damper on LeBron’s one hour special tomorrow night on ESPN, but it would show the world that he has come to the realization that he can’t win a title on his own and will need the help of two other superstars to get it done.

When the Celtics pieced together their Big Three of Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett, many argued that there was no way to put enough capable pieces around them to make us a title contender. Add in Eddie House, James Posey and a late signing of PJ Brown and we were raising banner No. 17.

In Miami, you have one of the best general managers of all time in Pat Riley running the show. Not only can he say “come play with three future Hall of Famers” (OK, maybe Bosh isn’t there yet, but he could be), but he could lure some veterans to Miami with the weather as a great place to end their respective career’s.

Whether this report is true or not has yet to be revealed. If it is true, it doesn’t necessarily mean that LeBron James is going to sign with the Miami Heat. But for me, if Riley is meeting with LeBron just 24-hours before his big revelation of where he will play, that’s a tell tale sign of his new home.

    That’s a scary big three, but I agree I was actually happy to see Bosh and Wade in Miami and Bron kind of ruins it for me. This thing has been so crazy I really can’t predict where he will end up anymore.

    I like Bosh and Wade and would have no problem watching them win a couple titles in Miami together, but if LeBron ends up tagging along for the ride, I won’t be able to root for them at all.

    I personally believe that LeBron thought he was going to dictate this summer’s free agency and it all backfired in his face. Everyone expected him to be the first domino to fall, but Rudy Gay, Joe Johnson and Amar’e Stoudemire made their decisions first. Last night, Chris Bosh committed to Dwyane Wade in Miami and they had their duo set. Carlos Boozer went to Chicago and left LeBron having to pick where he wanted to be.

    Chicago has the best all-around roster, New York has the bright lights and a formidable big man while Miami has two top-10 players now. The way Prince James is thinking is the pressure won’t fall all on his shoulders to win, so he’s off the hook much more now if he loses. And if they win like they are expected, LeBron’s legacy grows with every ring.

    Makes me sick…

    I got that update too. Lebron Bosh and Wade all playing together? Watch out for South Beach.
