Axis of Ego – LeBron talks, dances and makes dumb predicitons in Miami spectacle

July 09, 2010 - Miami, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES - epa02243343 LeBron James (L) joins with Miami Heat Dwayne Wade (C) for a laugh as Chris Bosh (R) tries out his Spanish while they greet fans during NBA basketball team Miami Heat's 'HEAT Summer of 2010 Welcome Event' at the American Airlines arena in Miami, Florida, USA, 09 July 2010. The Miami Heat reached an agreement with LeBron James to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers, and sign with the Miami Heat.

The Axis of Ego – get used to that name. It’s one of the many nicknames you’ll be hearing about the three players who think they’ll just waltz to a bunch of NBA championships.

We now know that LeBron is great at talking about himself, talking up what he claims he will do, and then dancing around like a fool. He did all of those in a spectacle last night in Miami. He was dumb enough to imply seven NBA championships, and you could see pained looked on the faces of Dwyane Wade and Pat Riley as he made that idiotic statement. Let’s see how The Court Jester performs in crunch time.

Meanwhile, the Cavs completed a sign-and-trade with Miami to get a load of draft picks for LeBron. They will get some grief in some circles, but it was the right business move.

UPDATE: Bill Simmons has hilarious tweet about the event.

“They should have had LeBron quit 2/3rds of the way through this Heat celebration – it could have been like the Boston series.”
