MIAMI - In a move that has shocked not only the basketball world but the entire sports world, the political world, and even the world of hip hop music, the Miami Heat have just announced that they have traded LeBron James to The Cleveland Cavaliers.
The heat traded Prince James, the player formerly known as King James, to the Cavs, who finished the 2010-2011 season at 19-63, for first year player Alonzo Gee. The Heat will also be receiving Cleveland's strength and conditioning coach Stan Kellers, and $135 cash.
The owners of the Miami Heat were apparently quite upset at the circus-like atmosphere that LeBron James had cast upon their team as well as the way that they were eliminated by the Dirk Nowitzki-led Dallas Mavericks four games to two.
The owners also said that they were extremely embarrassed at James and Dwyane Wade making fun of the fact that Nowitzki played game four while running a fever of 102.
Several reporters who cover the Heat during the season said that Nowitzki is a classy guy but that if it had been someone else like Kobe Bryant, after winning the final game, he would have pretended to limp making fun of Dwyane "Limpy" Wade's hip injury in game five and then he would have started choking making fun of LeBron "Chokey" James' fourth quarter play in the entire championship series.
Miami fans for the most part are okay with the trade since the other two-thirds of the "Dynasty Talking Trio" Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh will still remain with the Heat at least until some other NBA team makes an offer.
The only thing that could cause a bit of a problem for Lebron James is the fact that he is still pretty much a persona non grata in Cleveland for the way he decided to just abandon the team so he may find it difficult to find a place to live within the Cleveland city limits.
The mayor of Cleveland has suggested that it would be nice if LeBron could live in Ashtabula, which is a town located about 53 miles northeast of Cleveland.
Other die-hard Cavalier fans have even suggested that Lebron could live in Arizona, Alaska, or even Peru.
Cleveland coach Byron Scott was asked by Sports Territory's Atwood "Overtime" McSparrow how James will fit in with his team. Scott replied that as of right now, he is looking at LeBron James to be the sixth man on his team.
There are several unconfirmed reports that due to his highly inflated ego LeBron James may end up losing more than half of his advertisement endorsements including the one for Preparation H.
