Months of speculation have finally been laid to rest. A roller coaster ride that turned the NBA offseason into the biggest show in all of sports has ended with an unprecedented union of stars. LeBron James is going to the Miami Heat. That alone is monumental news, but comes as only one piece of the three man puzzle. With Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh committing to the Heat on Wednsday, James addition turns Miami into the center of the basketball world. Season tickets sold out early Thursday morning and the show that's only a few months away from arriving already has South Florida buzzing like they never have before. Wade, Bosh, and LeBron all on one roster is the stuff of fantasy. But now, it's a reality. Some will question whether the three can co-exist, a fair statement considering there's really nothing in NBA history to compare to this. Some wonder whether three superstars and a roster made up of league minimums will actually be that good. But if you've followed these players throughout their careers, no how unselfish their playing styles are, and recognize how incredibly talented they are, is there really any question this can work? How do you guard three players that all command a double team? The short answer is you can't. So does this make the Heat the team to beat for the next five to six years? What about this season, is the Miami Thrice enough to make the Heat the No.1 team in the country? Check out the newest NBA power rankings to find out.
