LEBRON JAMES | A TIMELINE
A look at key moments in the career of LeBron James since his arrival in Miami on that fateful night in July 2010:
Heat fans, chat with Miami Herald beat writer Joe Goodman about what's next for the team in the wake of James' announcement.

NBA FREE AGENCY
Social and sports media have been consumed by crazed rumors and chatter over where LeBron James will land.
The waiting game continues as LeBron James’ choices likely whittled down to Miami Heat, Cleveland Cavaliers
LeBron James spoke with Heat president Pat Riley on Wednesday, but James’ decision on staying in Miami or leaving is still an unknown.
In My Opinion
Dan Le Batard: LeBron James displays all his power as Pat Riley, Miami Heat and rest of the NBA awaits decision
There isn’t a lot of precedent for this spectacle we are presently Witnessing. So much power. So, so, so much power. LeBron James is the most powerful athlete in sports, by a lot, and what is going on around him these days is equal parts lunacy and chaos.
Economic uncertainty impacts every person a different way. Sometimes it affects one person several ways. Men like Warren Buffet capitalize on it, Jim Cramer obsesses about it and yells accordingly, and others try to avoid it if they can.
Heat president Pat Riley and LeBron James will get together Wednesday, one day before NBA free agents can sign new contracts.
Looking to retain LeBron James in a Heat uniform, Miami added to the roster by agreeing to deals with free agents Josh McRoberts and Danny Granger.
In My Opinion | Dan Le Batard
The panoramic view of the Miami Heats free agency has been interesting to watch from all angles.

While Heat waits for its real Big 3 to decide on their basketball futures, theres a fairly entertaining Big 3 coming together in the summer league.
In My Opinion | Greg Cote
Pat Riley, as the world was ending in the recent raw wake of the Heats 4-1 NBA Finals loss to San Antonio, advised fans and media to get a grip on reality to appreciate what the team built in 2010 had accomplished in four seasons, and that nobody wins every year.

This is why they conduct summer league.
Heat president Pat Riley hopes to convince free agents Pau Gasol, Luol Deng or Trevor Ariza to accept less money and sign with Miami — a quest that became more pressing following a report that LeBron James’ agent met with four teams.
The Heat is among several teams courting Spanish center and free agent Pau Gasol.
Pat Riley must do some wooing and cap-crunching and fend off rivals as he retools the Miami Heat’s makeup.
With LeBron James reportedly seeking a max contract, its up to Pat Riley, GM Andy Elisburg and the Big 3 to make the salaries work in Miami.
LeBron James reportedly wants a deal that pays about $21 million next season, meaning Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade must take big pay cuts for the Big 3 to stay together.
