To help kick those first-day-of-the-week blues, head on over to the great DimeMag.com to read my piece about the fantasy-basketball implications for LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh after their decision to team up on the Miami Heat. All three were fantasy studs last season, but just how far down the fantasy totem pole will these dudes drop?
You know the drill. Click on the link and read the post to find out. Let me know what you think in the comments section here, or on DimeMag.com.
Unless you’ve locked yourself in a soundproof vault in Stan Van Gundy’s basement, you know by now that LeBron James just announced his decision on ESPN: he’s joining the Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami.
First off: wow.
This is a potentially epic, landscape-shifting decision that has so many threads to follow. Among them are: the foundation for a possible long-term powerhouse in the NBA; the against-the-grain, true-to-their-word decisions made by James/Wade/Bosh to turn their backs on big dollars in favor of something more; the shattered hearts in New York, Chicago and, most of all, Cleveland; and the exponentially hotter spotlight that is immediately drawn to Miami.

Two-thirds of the dream trio that has been the recipient of so much attention this summer have finally decided on their future.
Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh announced today that they plan to sign with the Miami Heat.
From a fantasy standpoint, it’s not all that exciting — yet. It’s too early to jump to concrete conclusions on Wade and Bosh’s values next season, since we don’t know who else will (or will not) sign with their squad. As it stands, the Heat only have Wade, Bosh, Mario Chalmers and Michael Beasley on its payroll. If they fill out that roster with a bunch of minor role players, Wade and Bosh remain fantasy studs, though their stats might take a slight baby step back.
If, however, Wade and Bosh are joined by LeBron James, all three dudes will see their values take a material hit. (continue reading…)
