Three Kings spur excitement in SoFla

They're here.

The proclaimed 'three kings'- Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and LeBron
James- have arrived in Miami.

In arguably the greatest sports monopoly of all time, the Miami Heat have
signed three of the best players in the league.

On the evening of Friday, July 9, the team officially introduced the
players to a crowd of over 10,000 at the American Airlines Arena.

Each player received an equal amount of support from the fans while the players, aside from Wade, flaunted their new jerseys.

James sported his new #6 while Bosh wore #1. Wade retained #3.

The players came out to the crowd and gave high fives and handshakes before a twenty minute question and answer session with Heat TV and radio personalities.

Perhaps the most prophetic statement of the night came from none other than James: "We're not gonna win 1, not 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7 championships. "

Is James placing the world on his shoulders by claiming the Heat will win eight titles, or was this simply his retaliation to his former boss, Cleveland Cavaliers' owner Dan Gilbert? Gilbert hours earlier promised that the Cavs would win a championship before the 'selfish traitor', James himself.

James later said 'it will be too easy' for the self-proclaimed 'dynas-three' to win multiple rings.

Other highlights of the night included a display of Chris Bosh's mediocre spanish and a presentation of the keys to the city from Miami officials to the three superstars.
